During the 1862 reorganization this unit became a battalion. The Fourth suffered heavy casualties in subsequent battles and the two companies left after Sharpsburg were consolidated with the dismounted section of the Hampton Legion under Matthew Gary. This new unit continued to be known as the Hampton Legion.
