Das Regiment bestand weitgehend aus Anhängern der Demokratischen Partei; es bestanden Zweifel an der Loyalität zu den USA, weshalb Governor Oliver P. *Morton das Einschwören des Regiments auf die USA veranlaßte. Es gab ebenfalls Desertionen. Captain William T. Stark (Co. C) stand zeitweise unter Arrest, unter dem Vorwurf, er begünstige Desertionen aus seiner Company (vgl. Wel­cher / Ligget: Coburn’s Brigade, a.a.O., S. 50).
