It then moved into Arkansas with Osterhaus's Brigade and fought at Pea Ridge, losing in that, its first action, 4 killed, 37 wounded and 27 missing. It then moved with Asboth's Division to Corinth, after which it encamped during the summer at Rienzi, Miss. In the fall it marched to Louisville, where it was assigned to Sheridan's Division in which it fought at Chaplin Hills, losing 9 killed, 64 wounded, and 4 missing. At Stone's River, it was in Sill's (1st) Brigade, Sheridan's (3d) Division, McCook's Corps; General Sill was killed in this battle, whereupon Colonel Greusel took the command of the brigade.
