The battalion only consisted of four companies, which is why it was classed as a battalion rather than a regiment, which usually had twelve companies during the war. At the time of mustering in, the battalion consisted of twelve officers and four hundred enlisted men.
On September 19, the regiment received a 30 day furlough and was mustered out of service on October 29, 1898 at Carson City. At the time of mustering out, the regiment had been reduced in size to have thirteen officers and 277 enlisted men. During its term of service, one enlisted man was discharged on disability and one deserted. One hundred twenty-six enlisted men were discharged early.
The regiment had served its period or service within the continental U.S.
