It served in Missouri for several months, during which time the regiment had a sharp fight at Blue Mills with a superior force under the Confederate General Atchison.
The Third was alone in this fight, and behaved with great gallantry, capturing a piece of artillery.
In the spring of 1862, it joined Grant's Army in the advance up the Tennessee River, and was engaged at Shiloh.
