Early on the morning of Dec. 15 it took position on the Murfreesboro pike. After daylight it was moved to the left of Fort Negley and in the afternoon to the right of the fort, where it remained during the battle. After the battle it was employed in guarding prisoners at Nashville and in their transit from Nashville to Louisville.
