by companies and ordered to Chattanooga in the winter of 1864-65. It was
composed of twelve companies, each containing 140 men, besides the
officers. It was placed in charge of the heavy guns and forts at
Chattanooga, a responsible position, as it was thought Hood would
endeavor to retake the city. It remained there until the war closed and
was mustered out by companies in June and Sept., 1865.
