Next they were part of the defense of Jackson, Mississippi and the subsequent evacuation and escape of Johnston's Army. The 3rd remained along the Big Black River conducting small harassment raids in the Vicksburg area. The regiment began to find new life.
They took part in smuggling several thousand rifles across the Mississippi under Union noises. Under Ross none of the regiments rested nor did the Union units along the Mississippi. In February the Brigade tried to stop Sherman's moves in Mississippi, but was only able to harass such a large force. The regiment was more successful in repelling attempts by Union regiments and river forces to capture Yazoo City.
In May they moved into northern Alabama to suppress Unionism and to collect deserters.

May 15, , the brigade was assigned to the left flank of General Johnston's Army and began to skirmish almost daily for the next one hundred days. One regiment would come off the line and another would take its place. Because of the daily fighting, the regiments slowly lost men until they began collapsing units, joining two companies together.
Not all men were killed. Many wounded and were left in homes and hospitals across Georgia. From its arrival in Rome, Georgia on May 12th, until the siege of Atlanta began on July 9th fighting and rain did not stop for any extended period. While engaging with General McCook's Union Cavalry Corps the regiment with its strength about was over run and 23 men were captured and the horse holders scattered and the horses were captured.
This could have been a devastating defeat, were it not for the bravery of the men, the size of the enemy force, and the fact the unit came back together after being over run.
Even Ross was captured for a short period. Had the enemy not been running in fear, they could have completely destroyed the Ross's Brigade. Most of the supplies, horses and captured men were retrieved and the Brigade was able to refit. Again they were on the edge of disaster. The 6th and 9th charged into the melee but to no avail.
The man Union forces just moved through capturing horses and men, but not slowing down. The units were beginning to lack the manpower to take on big units. After the fall of Atlanta, the Brigade moved to attack Sherman's supply line on the railroad from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Following this they joined Hood's force for an attack at Franklin and Nashville, Tennessee. Following Hood's loss at Nashville, the regiment and brigade as part of Forest's Cavalry provided rear guard for the Army, thus allowing Hood to retreat back into Alabama. The Brigade moved back into Mississippi and was only involved in minor skirmished until the end of the war.
The regimental strength was about two hundred men. The regiment was released about the 15th.
Major Stone was the acting commander and led the regiment home. None had lost so many, fought so hard, and received so little recognition.
