The companies of this regiment were organized under the leadership of Arthur E. Reynolds, a lawyer of Jacinto, beginning in the summer of 1861, for three years or during the war. The claim is recorded in the regimental record, obtained by Col. Power in Virginia, that this was "the first regiment which left the State for the war.: Reynolds was unanimously elected Colonel Sep 10, 1861, and served till the close of the war.

The regiment was in camp at Iuka until Dec 3, 1861, when it was ordered to Union City, Tenn., whence it moved December 28 to report to Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston at Bowling Green, KY. From Bowling Green they marched to Russellville February 6, 1861, and thence to Fort Donelson, where they arrived February 13, and were engaged in battle until the surrender February 16, when all became prisoners of the war. The commissioned officers were confined at Camp Chase and Johnson's Island, Ohio, for six months and then exchanged September 15, 1862, at Vicksburg. Many died during the imprisonment.
