The total rank and file of this battalion was 509 men.
The battalion was as well drilled and as thoroughly disciplined as any command in the Confederate service.
When General Butler made his famous attack on Fort Fisher and attempted to land his troops, all work at the arsenal and armory was suspended, and this entire command were sent to report to Major- General Whiting. The command remained several days near Fort Fisher, and finding General Butler had abandoned his purpose, this command was ordered back to Fayetteville, and w r ork again resumed in the various departments. The large majority of this battalion had been in many a hard-fought battle with Lee and Jackson, but, being skilled artisans and mechanics of a high 1 order, they were < 1< -tailed from their commands for this most important duty at the arsenal and armory, but they were always ready to obey the sum- mons to the field.
