HistoryOrganized in August, 1862, under Colonel J.W. Frizell, it at once proceeded to Kentucky. In the retreat towards Louisville the Regiment suffered severely for want of food and water. In October it took a prominent part in the battle of Perryville, and at Stone River was engaged every day of the battle. At Chickamauga it again engaged the enemy, and later took part in the assaults on Lookout Mountain and Mission Ridge. In May, 1864, it joined Sherman's Atlanta campaign, fighting and skirmishing all the way through to Atlanta. After pursuing Hood north it marched to the sea, and then through the Carolinas, taking part in the last battle at Bentonville. When Johnston surrendered the Regiment marched to Washington via Richmond, passed in review before the President, and was mustered out June 6, 1865.
