he is not the only union army commander killed[edit]

Nathaniel Lyons was army of Missouri commander killed Aug 1861 fixed it yesterday and will fix it again if I have to... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jjs63004 (talkcontribs) 15:05, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

A statement of this type probably does not really matter, but I will point out that Lyons commanded the Army of the West, which was really an Army in name only. It had a strength of about 5400 men, about the size of a typical Union brigade or small division. So it would be correct to say McPherson was the only major general commanding an army killed in battle, or the only commander of a multi-corps army killed in battle, but that sounds too much like a lawyer wrote it. :-) Hal Jespersen (talk) 21:24, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

And in 1861 that was a army does not mean size but it was listed as a army. So to say McPherson is the only federal army commander killed is incorrect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.160.114.205 (talk) 04:31, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
