It left early in the srping of 1863 for Nashville, Tenn., when it was ordered to Murfreesboro, where it remained doing picket and scout duty until the Army of the Cumberland opened the campaign against Gen. Bragg, in which the regiment performed a vast amount of marching and countermarching. It was actively engaged in all of Gen. Kilpatrick's movements during Sherman's Atlanta campaign, after which the great march to the sea was inaugurated, and on this march the regiment was frequently engaged with the enemy. The following list of battles, in which this regiment bore an honorable part, has been compiled, after a careful research, during the preparation of this work: Chickamauga, Ga. ; Cosby creek, Tenn.; Tunnel Hill, siege of Atlanta, Jonesboro, Sweetwater, Bear Creek Station, Waynesboro, Ga. ; Aiken, S. C. ; Monroe cross-roads and Averasboro, N. C. The regiment was mustered out on July 24, 1865, at Lexington, N. C, in accordance with orders from the war department.
