In February, 1863, it totalled 407 effectives and served in S.D. Lee's and Baldwin's Brigade in the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana. The unit participated in the long Vicksburg siege and was captured on July 4, 1863. After the exchange it was assigned to Generla Baldwin's, Tucker's, and Sears' Brigade.
