In July the unit contained 880 effectives, moved to Kentucky, then skirmished at Cumberland Gap and Tazewell. Later it joined the Army of Tennessee and served in P.Smith's, Vaughan's, and Palmer's Brigade.

It reported 8 killed, 64 wounded, and 11 missing at Murfreesboro and 8 killed and 44 wounded at Chickamauga. In December, 1863, it totaled 340 men and 267 arms.

Long, and James E. Rains; Lieutenant Colonels Thomas P. Bateman, William Thedford, and Howell Webb; and Majors John E. Binns, William Green, Hugh R. Lucas, and Philip Van Horn Weems.
