It then took part in the marches and skirmishes in eastern Tennessee until the gap was evacuated in September. The regiment was in various movements until Danville was reached, camping there until the last of Jan., 1863, and then marching to Louisville, Nashville, Brentwood and Franklin. In March it fought Van Dorn's forces near Columbia, and was engaged at Thompson's station, where about 400 of the regiment were captured and nearly 100 killed and wounded. The prisoners were paroled and about two months later were exchanged and joined the regiment. During this time the balance of the regiment remained at Franklin and was in numerous engagements in that vicinity. About the first of July it moved towards Tullahoma; was in the advance on Shelbyville; was stationed at Manchester, Estill Springs, Cowan, Decherd and Tracy City during September and October, and moved to Christiana in November.

The regiment's loss during this campaign was more than 300 in killed and wounded.
