This unit fought from Bull Run to Spotsylvania, including Gettysburg where they distinguished themselves at the Railroad Cut in the capture of Davis' Mississippi Brigade.

 

Das Regiment war eingesetzt bei 1st Bull Run am 21.7.1861 im Rahmen der 2nd Division Col David Hunter, First Brigade Col. An­drew Porter und nahm am Flankenstoß bei Sudley's Ford Richtung Henry House teil.

 

Auf dem Höhepunkt der Schlacht um Henry House Hill waren zwei Artilleriebat­terien der Union (Battery I. 1st U.S. Artillery James B. Rickett's Battery und Griffin's Bat­tery) gerade dabei, Breschen in die Stellung der Konföderierten zu schießen, als plötzlich rechts von zwei Geschützen aus dem 70 Meter entfernten Wald ein blaugekleidetes Regiment auftauchte. Die Artillerie hielt dieses Re­giment für die angeforderte Infanterie­verstärkung und stellte für einige verhängnisvolle Minuten das Feuer ein, während das Re­giment – das 33rd Virginia Infantry Regiment aus Jacksons Bri­gade (vgl. Tevis, C. V.: History of the Fighting Fourteenth, a.a.O., S. 26; umstritten, auch die 6th North Carolina und 2nd Mississippi Infantry reklamieren die Ausschaltung der Batterien) - die Muske­ten senkte und feuerte. Die Artilleriegeschütze wurden ausgeschaltet, Der Besitz der Ka­nonen wurde zum Drehpunkt der Schlacht; Atta­cken und Gegenattacken wechselten einander ab. Die Kanonen wechselten mehrfach den Besitzer, bis die Koordination des Unionsa­ngriffs auf diesem Teil des Schlachtfelds zusammenbrach.

 

Three times during the engagement of almost five hours the regiment occupied the spot opposite the „Henry“ House. On gaining this position for the third time it recaptured the guns of Rickett's battery, but for lack of support was obliged to abandon them (vgl. Tevis: Fighting Fourteenth, a.a.O., S. 26).

 

Das Regiment hatte bei 1st Bull Run erhebliche Verluste (Ausgangsstärke 960 Mann; vgl. Tevis: Fighting Fourteenth, a.a.O., S. 21): killed 2 Officers, 21 men; wounded 64 men, Prisoners 30 men; died of wounds 10 men (vgl. Tevis: Fighting Fourteenth, a.a.O., S. 26).

 

Im Gefecht von Falls Church am 18.11.1861 war das Regiment im Vorpostendienst eingesetzt und wurde plötzlich von Stuart's First Virginia Cavalry unter dem Kommando von Fitzhugh Lee abgegriffen; Verluste: 2 Tote, 3 Verwundete und 10 Gefangene (vgl. Tevis: Fighting Fourteenth, a.a.O., S. 29).
