Perfection of the regiment of 975 men was completed at Red Boiling Springs, Macon County on October 22, 1861. From there they went to Camp Zollicoffer in Overton County on October 31, 1861. Then on November 2, 1861 to Gallatin, Tennessee from there to Fort Donelson near Dover in Stewart County arriving there on November 27, 1861. There they were employed in building quarters, Commissary and Quartermaster buildings, roads, fortifications and water batteries. One company was on duty at Fort Henry on the Tennessee River when it surrendered, the rest of the regiment was marching to its relief when it fell.

The regiment was in the four days battle at Fort Donelson and was surrendered on February 16, 1862. The enlisted men were sent to Camp Butler, Illinois, the line officers were sent to Camp Chase, Ohio and from there to Johnson's Island, Ohio. The field officers were exchanged on August 3, 1862. The line officers and enlisted men were exchanged on September 30, 1862 at Vicksburg, Mississippi. They were re-organized at Jackson, Mississippi on October 4, 1864, with new officers elected.

The regiment was sent to Vicksburg, Mississippi on December 25, 1862 and remained there until January 8, 1863, when it was ordered to Port Hudson, Louisiana remaining there until May 2, 1863, being then ordered to Jackson, Mississippi, then to Grand Gulf, Mississippi, then to Raymond, Mississippi, back to Jackson, to Canton, Mississippi, to Yazoo City, Mississippi, to Big Black River, Mississippi, then back to Jackson, then to Morton's Station, Mississippi, to Enterprise, Mississippi, then to Ringgold, Georgia, where it joined Bragg's Army.

The valor of this regiment is shown by their losses. At Fort Donelson losing twenty-three killed and wounded. At Springdale, Mississippi five severely wounded. At Chickasaw Bayou, Mississippi this regiment and the 3rd Tennessee Infantry fought an entire division of 5,000 men capturing 400 and killing and wounding 300, capturing 1,500 stand of arms, and five regimental flags. Their losses not given, then fighting Union transports on the Mississippi River capturing a quantity of Commissary and Quartermaster stores losing two killed and three wounded. Lost one killed and five wounded at Port Hudson, Louisiana. At Raymond, Mississippi, Gregg's Brigade, which included this regiment, fought against odds of five to one, losing heavily. All records were lost here for the second time, the other being at Fort Donelson. The losses were heavy here and at Jackson, heavy again at Missionary Ridge, in all about 200 killed, wounded or captured.

At Chickamauga, Georgia, 185 men were engaged suffering terribly. The number illegible. They were in the Atlanta Campaign from Reseca, Georgia, to Jonesboro, Georgia, then to Franklin, Tennessee, and Nashville, Tennessee. Their last battle was Bentonville, North Carolina. The little handful of this brave band were surrendered as a part of General Joseph E. Johnston's Army at Greensboro, North Carolina on May 1, 1865.

General Forrest said, "There was no need for a surrender anyone went away who wished". We see the truth of his statement, especially in this company. This was caused by their position in the line of battle. Companies A and B having been assigned to man the water batteries and thus absent from their regular position at the right of the line, threw Company C as the right of the regiment, causing a shortening of the regimental line. The Union forces took advantage of this weakening and thinning of the battle line to establish themselves in the fort and could not be driven out. This while the army was trying for a breakthrough to open an escape route to Nashville, Tennessee. The opening to escape was made but the men were ordered back into their intrenchments and were surrendered next day. General Forrest refused to surrender and his command marched away unmolested. Almost every horse in his command was carrying an infantryman as well as his own rider.

Hundreds of men just walked away during the three days battle, a goodly number of whom enlisted in another command.
