Commanded Co. B, Bradshaw's Squadron, Oct. 7, 1862. Actually it was an independent command stationed at Chatt. that fall. Enl. for duration in HC, July 14, 1863. Several months after organizing his command Tyner applied to Gen. Beauregard for an engineering position at Charleston or to "dismount his command" and bring them to Charleston to man a battery. His application was supported by Col. Alfred Colquitt, commanding 6th Georgia, who stated, Tyner "comes with the highest recommendations as an Engineer and a man of integrity and influence."
Apparently unsuccessful, Tyner remained in the west and fought at Shiloh, Corinth, Perryville, Chickamauga. June 30, 1864 he and his command were detached as "Tyner's Sappers and Miners," becoming in effect the engineering department of Wheeler's Cavalry Corps. Oct. 31, 1864 he was on leave in Troup County, GA, then was assigned to special duty with Gen. J. B. Hood during the invasion of Tennessee, Nov., 1864. He was paroled at Gainesville, AL on May 12, 1865. [CSR; Chatt. Bi-C Clipping file; 1860HC; see also Hunter Nicholson, major and Asst.
