"Organized 9 September 1861, the company was mustered into service at Camp Clark, Bay St. Louis, by 1st Lt Charleston Hurst. Originally designated as Company "E", it became Company "B" when attached to the Mississippi Infantry. Company "B" fought at Shiloh and Fort Pemberton, and participated in the sinking of the Cairo on the Yazoo by the first successful launching of a floating land mine." Ms Hemphill includes a narrative of this event as well as the action at Brown's (or Browning's) Bar on the Yazoo River near Shell Bluff Plantation.

No unit designation is ever mentioned in Ms Hemphill's book; however A Military History of Mississippi by Dunbar Rowland includes a description of the 22nd Mississippi Infantry which discusses some of the river expeditions on the Sunflower River. It is likely this is the regiment to which the Sunflower Dispensers were attached.
