ORDER OF BATTLE of a given country, service, or field force consists of the identification, strength, command structure, and disposition of the personnel, units, and equipment of its constituted military forces.
The order of battle details the major commands and all the cascade of units and subordinate units under the control of those commands, listing as well the commanders and effective strengths of the various units at all levels.
Orders of battle may also include supporting forces, such as transportation units, escorts, replenishment and supply, surveillance and reconnaissance units and air support, which may not come under the command of the organization thus detailed, but provide essential services and augmentation of the supported unit's objectives in a campaign.

 A Guadalcanal Chronology & Order of Battle
It skipped over the Battle of the Tenaru River in August and did not provide a scenario for the November offensive that the Japanese would have mounted if so many of their forces and supplies had not been sunk at sea after the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal (12-14 November 1942).
The intensity of the battles at sea and on land was due in great part to the rough equality of the forces involved.
The five battles in the waters off Guadalcanal, which include the two nights of the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, are listed in sequence to the left of the island.

 First World War.com - Battles - The Battle of the Somme, 1916
Comprising the main Allied attack on the Western Front during 1916, the Battle of the Somme is famous chiefly on account of the loss of 58,000 British troops (one third of them killed) on the first day of the battle, 1 July 1916, which to this day remains a one-day record.
The French Commander in Chief, Joffre, conceived the idea as a battle of attrition, the aim being to drain the German forces of reserves, although territorial gain was a secondary aim.
Meanwhile the British attack was renewed in north-east, the Battle of Flers-Courcelette, by the Fourth Army on 15 September.

 Post-Battle Options
The end of battle option also automatically calculates the numbers of returning wounded and missing during the immediate aftermath of battle.
It can also be used to reset morale and fatigue levels whilst maintaining combat losses to reflect the condition encountered in two-day battles, where units have recouped fatigue and morale but not strength loss from the previous day.
this is particularly useful when used in conjunction with a campaign, as the army list will now reflect the previous combat experience and losses of the individual general officers and combat units in future and subsequent engagement, as new orders of battle are created using the new updated army list file.

 Allied Order-of-Battle at Leipzig: 16-18 October 1813
The Battle of Leipzig (also known as “the Battle of the Nations”) was the climax of the German “War of Liberation.” During 1813, Allied generals had defeated some of Napoleon’s Marshals (Ney at Dennewitz; Oudinot at Gross-Beeren) but had failed against Napoleon himself at Lutzen and Bautzen.
The Allied Army-Group was composed of four army-level commands: the Russian-Austrian Army of Bohemia (Swarzenburg), the Russian-Prussian Army of Silesia (GK, later GFM, Gerhard-Leberecht von Blucher), the Russian Army of Poland (GC Leonty Leontievich, Baron Bennigsen) and the Russian-Prussian-Swedish Army of the North (Jean-Baptiste-Jules Bernadotte, Crown Prince of Sweden — a former French Marshal).
Although sources disagree about the composition and strength of the Allied Army-Group, it is clear the Battle of Leipzig was the largest battle of the Napoleonic Wars.

 Order of battle
First, always remember that most Civil War units in the field were only at anywhere between 20% to 40% of their full strength.
Thus, while in theory a company contained 100 men, and would be recruited at that size, by the time they reached the army they'd be down to 60 or so and after the first battle down to 40 or so.
For example, a major who was a brevet colonel collected the pay of a major, wore the uniform of a major, could not give orders to lieutenant colonels, and was only eligible for commands that normally fell to majors.
