A 29 year old farmer in Davidson County, he enlisted 27 April 1861 in Company B, 14th North Carolina Infantry.

On the Campaign

He was mortally wounded by a gunshot to his right thigh and hip - the top of his femur shattered - in action at Sharpsburg on 17 September 1862. He was then captured there.

The rest of the War

He was treated at a field hospital near the battlefield, then admitted to US Army General Hospital #1 in Frederick, MD, but died there of wounds on 19 (or 20) October 1862.

After the War

He was originally buried "on west side of and in the [Mt. Olivet] cemetery at Frederick", but was probably reinterred at Hagerstown in about 1874.
