It was active with the ANV from Seven Days to Fredericksburg. It was stationed in Pacataligo, SC until June 1863. The 46th returned to Virginia and participated in Bristoe, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor. The 46th served throughout Petersburg and surrendered at Appomattox with 15 officers and 102 men."
