Robert Bullock, commanding Finley's, bore themselves with heroic courage, both through good and evil fortune, always executing orders with zeal and alacrity, and bearing themselves in the face of the enemy as became reputations which each had heretofore bravely won. The latter was severely wounded near Murfreesboro, and was succeeded by Major Lash, whose coolness and gallantry were marked.’ Colonel Bullock came out of the Tennessee campaign with the temporary rank of brigadier-general.

This battalion was in the brigade of Gen. Joseph
