The regiment served mostly in the Indian Territory but ventured into Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas. Lieut. Ellithorpe and his regiment fought in a number of battles and skirmishes from Prairie Grove to Willow Springs. He and his men also followed Confederate General Sterling Price through western Missouri. After the war, he engaged in the business of heavy contracting and the inventions of mechanical devices.
