This regiment was formed at White Sulphur Springs in Jun 1862. The portion of the regiment that was captured at Arkansas Post, AR 11 Jan 1863 and were paroled 10 Apr 1863 at City Point, VA were retained in the Army of Tennessee and were involved in the East Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina campaigns and ended the war in 1865 at Greensboro, NC.
The remainder of the 24th (Those not captured at Arkansas Post) was consolidated with Crawford's Inf Bn and Dawson's 19th AR Inf and became Hardy's/Dawsons Inf  Regt early in 1863.

NOTE:  All the CSRs of the men who were captured 11 Jan 1863 at Ark Post, AR, sent to MP at Camp Douglas, IL then delivered to City Point, VA 10 Apr 1863 bear the following notation: " City Point VA.

USA (520) five hundred and twenty confederate prisoners of war and one Negro Boy, stated to be a prisoner of war.' J.H. Thompson, Commanding at City Point, VA."
(It should further be noted that this confederate prisoner shown as "Negro Boy",  probably was a grown man, but to the person who received the prisoners he would always be considered a "boy".)
