But building from scratch means it doesn't exist to begin with. And according to the Army Historical Foundadtion's own book it was less than 200,000 before entry in WWI.

Again, why say how the Germans felt about the American army in WWI? That's a completely different army than the Civil War era armies, as is the German army. New weapons have come along, training has changed, new machines of war are already beginning to change the battlefield before the break out of WWI. What were German views during the Civil War, not decades later. Those are what matter.

On the roving mobs thing, I believe Catton said that at the start of the war they were roving mobs but at the end they were organized armies.
