Note: This unit was organized for local defense at Columbia on 18 December 1863, under authority of the War Department. It was paroled at Chester, SC, on 5 May 1865. The company was raised during Oct-Dec 1863, from conscripts declared unfit for field service at the camp of instruction in Columbia. Later, men from other commands who were declared unfit for field service by the Medical Examining Board were also transferred to the company. These men were either too old for field service or had been rendered diabled by prior service. The Provost Guard was the military police, chasing deserters amd escaped POWs, along with assisting in keeping civil order. This unit may have fallen under the commpand of Captain Senn.
