HistoryThe organization of this Regiment was effected in February, 1862, under Lieutenant Colonel Wager Swayne and Colonel Kirby Smith. The early spring found it at New Madrid Missouri, in the Army of the Mississippi, losing severely in killed and wounded. It saw severe fighting in Rosecrans campaign against Price and Van Dorn, losing its Colonel, Kirby Smith, at the battle of Corinth. The Regiment enlisted as veterans unanimously, and returning to the field, followed the fortunes of the Ohio Brigade under Fuller, in the Atlanta campaign, and did creditable service in that of Savannah and the Carolinas following. It was mustered out at Louisville, in July, 1865.
