Looking for brigade strengths for the various battles online. I found a good one on Gettysburg that listed each brigade and how many men were in each brigade at the start of the battle. Does anyone know of a good online source for such information?

Not an online source, but the multi volume work "Battles and Leaders of the Civil War" contains an awful lot of detailed information about unit strengths at many ACW battles.

Find a brigade level wargame on the battle. Unit strengths tend to be based on the number of men in the unit. So well documented of a battle should not be hard. Scenario books for miniature systems like Johnny Reb or across Deadly Ground should have them. I have seen them

Wikipedia has a lot of them.

Check the rosters for the various games from The GAmers – the had a whole range of them.

Here is an OOB for Mill Springs/Fishing Creek/Logan's Cross Roads: link

And here's some for Chickamauga: link

Hope these help.

If you can lay your hands on the Eastern and Western Battles books by "Fire and Fury" they would have alot of that information, and all of it well researched.
