The unit served on the Georgia coast, then guarded prisoners and stores at Macon. In November it moved to Virginia and, assigned to the Department of Richmond, was again given the job of guarding prisoners. Early in 1864 it was stationed in North Carolina and in the spring returned to Virginia. Assigned to A.R.
