He organized a company of men at Lower Salem - the Salem Light Guard - and enlisted them in the 36th Infantry in August 1861, being elected Captain of Company G.

He was promoted to Major of the Regiment in May 1864. He resigned his commission on 29 November 1864 and reenlisted as veteran.

He was Clerk of the Court 1871-72 and Mayor of Marietta 1874-78. He was practicing as an attorney there by 1888 - on the occasion of a Palmer family reunion, and still there at least until 1908, when he published a roster of survivors of the Regiment.
