Manson was promoted colonel, and Capt. William C. Wilson, of Co. D, was made major. The regiment left the state June 19, and proceeded to Parkersburg, W. Va., thence to Buckhannon. It reached Rich mountain, July 10, and the next day charged the enemy's works, routing him and capturing his guns.

It participated in the battle of Mill Springs, saving the day by its resistance to a desperate charge by Zollicoffer's forces. It joined Buell's army in its march to the Tennessee river, but reached Shiloh too late to take part in the battle. At the siege of Corinth, and until its evacuation, the regiment was present. It then joined in pursuit of Bragg through Kentucky, being engaged at the battle of Perryville. It was stationed in the country south of the Cumberland river and east of Nashville until the summer of 1863, and then accompanied the Army of the Cumberland to Chattanooga, participating in the battle of Chickamauga, where Col. Carroll was killed.
