From Macon County, NC, he enlisted as Corporal, Company E, 2nd Georgia Infantry, date not given.

On the Campaign

He was mortally wounded by gunshot to the thigh, with compound fracture, and captured in action at Sharpsburg on 17 September 1862.

The rest of the War

He was treated at the Locust Spring field hospital on the Geeting farm near the battlefield, without amputation, and was doing well when transferred to the Camp "B" US Army hospital in Frederick, MD on 5 January 1863.
