A regimental roster dated March 20, 1865, said that Company B and Company E were mustered into Confederate service on December 12, 1861. They did not re-enlist upon reorganization on February 18, 1862. The verbiage was that they failed to "muster to go anywhere." I interpret that to mean that the two companies would not agree to go with the rest of the regiment outside Louisiana. At the time, they were at Camp Lovell near Brashear City or Berwick. The two companies were detached from the regiment. Company B went into the garrison at Fort Berwick and Company E into Fort Chene. Both companies received orders to go to Fort Jackson but never made it there.
We know that this latter information is partially incorrect. Assenheimer's Company B made it to Fort St. Philip, fought there, and became POWs upon the surrender. The company ceased to exist at that point. Herrick's company is unaccounted for. It may have been in New Orleans when Farragut passed Fort Jackson and Fort St. Philip and may have disbanded in the city with other units. It is unlikely that either company completed the March-April 1862 muster roll, so there is no record of their activities for those two months from that perspective.
