The different companies of the battalion served at times on distant fields of duty, in Tennessee, in north Mississippi and in Georgia. For instance, while R. Anderson's (formerly Thomas A. Dawson's) battery was in Georgia during the Atlanta campaign, Ferrell's battery was in north Mississippi under Roddey. The battalion did good and faithful service wherever called upon.
