Amory's brigade and took part in the expedition to Goldsboroa in the early part of December. Company G, under Capt. T. D. Kimball, was detached December 30 for outpost duty at Brice's Ferry, and remained there throughout its stay in North Carolina. In January, 1863, the regiment shared in the reconnoissance to Trenton, and served in March on garrison duty at various points on the railroad between New Berne and Morehead City, and also at Beaufort and Evans' Mills. Returning to New Berne May 4, it encamped near the Trent River until ordered, June 24, to Fortress Monroe. Volunteering for further service (the term of service of many of the companies having expired), the command moved to Baltimore, and, forming part of General Briggs' brigade, was stationed at Marye's Heights. It joined the Army of the Potomac at Funkstown and took part in the pursuit of the Confederates. On July 17 it received orders to return to Massachusetts, and reached Worcester, Mass., July 21, where it was mustered out of service July 27, 1863.
