Exchanged in time to participate in the battle of Missionary Ridge, it bore an honorable part in the Atlanta and Tennessee campaigns. In the spring of 1865 it was consolidated with the Forty-first and Forty-third Georgia, retaining its own number, and after taking part in the campaign of the Carolinas, surrendered with General Johnston.

At the organization of the Forty-first Georgia, Charles A. McDaniel was made colonel; William E. Curtis, lieutenant-colonel; John Knight, major; E. Elless, adjutant, and A. D. Abraham, quartermaster. The captains were: J. E. Stallings (A), George N. Lester (B), George S. Avery (C), John W. Powell (D), J. C. Cartwright (E), S. D. Clements (F), Washington Henibree (G), Newton J. Ross (H), W. B. Thomason (I), J. J. Bowen (K). This regiment was assigned to the army of Tennessee; was for a time in north Mississippi; went with Bragg into Kentucky, and was especially distinguished at Perryville, where it had two color-bearers killed and four wounded, and where its gallant colonel, McDaniel, fell late in the evening mortally wounded. It went with Stevenson's division to Mississippi, where it participated in the battles of the Vicksburg campaign, and was included in the surrender of that important post. It was exchanged in time to take part in the battle of Missionary Ridge; was in the Atlanta and Tennessee campaigns of 1864, and in 1865, being consolidated with the Fortieth and Forty-third Georgia, participated in the campaign of the Carolinas and in General Johnston's surrender. Some of the changes in officers were as follows: William E. Curtis became colonel; Major Knight, lieutenant-colonel; W. S. Nall, major; D. McClesky and Thomas L. Dobbs became captains of Company B, S. D. Clements of Company F, R. A. Wood of Company G.
