He was a Mexican War veteran, having served in Company C, Coffey's Alabama Militia Infantry (Perry County Volunteers/First Alabama Regiment), 1846-47. A married 35 year old farmer from Radsfordville, he enrolled in Company K, 8th Alabama Infantry in May 1861 as Captain. He was present at Yorktown, Williamsburg, Seven Pines, Gaines' Mill, Frazier's Farm, and 2nd Manassas in 1862.

On the Campaign

He was wounded in action on 17 September 1862 at Sharpsburg - "temporarily disabled by a shell."

The rest of the War

He was again in action at Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg. He was appointed Major just before the battle of the Wilderness, VA on 7 May 1864, and commanded the regiment briefly as senior officer after Colonel Herbert was wounded in action there. He was himself severely wounded in the lung, soon after. He may have returned to his Regiment, but died of complications of his Wilderness wound on 4 November 1864.
