Following this action, the regiment traveled to Jefferson Barracks on 23 November, then to Union occupied Memphis Tennessee, where it remained until October 1863, later to be tasked by General William T.

Their duties included "preventing the organization of enemy commands, capturing guerrilla bands and escorting trains."
