      When is an army really an army?

      According to the battle summary at CWSAC web site
      http://www.cr.nps.gov/hps/abpp/civil.htm
      the U.S. force involved was the 1st & 2nd Brigades, Army of
      Kentucky. They suffered about 900 k&w, and 4000 missing.

      Bragg captured about 4,000 at Munfordville. The Rebs captured 10,000
      at Harper's Ferry. Do these count as "destroying an enemy army"?
