This regiment was organized October 3, 1862, under Col. Israel Garrard. It operated in Kentucky, Tennessee and North Carolina, and in July, 1864, joined Sherman’s Atlanta campaign, fighting almost daily. After the fall of that city it moved north and met the enemy at Franklin and Nashville under Thomas, then followed in the pursuit of Hood across the Tennessee River.
