31st Infantry Regiment was assembled during the early summer of 1862 and moved east of the Mississippi River. Assigned to Colonel T. H. McCray's Brigade, it took an active part in the conflict at Richmond, Kentucky. Later it was placed in General McNair's Brigade and united with the 25th Regiment from April to August, 1863.
