Before Sharpsburg

From Hertford County, he enlisted in Company F, 27th North Carolina Infantry on 1 May 1861.

On the Campaign

He was mortally wounded by gunshot to his left leg (with fracture of his tibia) and was captured in action on 17 September 1862 at Sharpsburg.

The rest of the War

He was treated at a field hospital near the battlefield and admitted to the US Army General Hospital #5 in Frederick, MD on 21 October 1862. By that time he had also developed pneumonia and pericarditis (swelling of heart membrane). He died there on 12 (or 14) November 1862. He was originally buried "on west side of and in the [Mt Olivet] cemetery at Frederick" and probably reinterred at Hagerstown in about 1874.
