Graham was the Assistant Surgeon of the 5th Virginia Infantry and joined the 42 Virginia as regimental surgeon in 1862. He served with the 42nd through the Antietam, Gettysburg, Wilderness and Spotsylvania campaigns and in September 1864 he left the 42nd on detail to the Artillery Medical Department, Army of Northern Virginia. He was promoted to Major and served on the staff of Brig. Gen. William N. Pendleton, Commander of Artillery, Army of Northern Virginia. He was paroled at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. The 42nd Virginia saw some of the heaviest fighting in the war and was almost decimated at Spotsylvania when they lost 5 killed, 11 wounded and 210 captured in the Union assault on the Mule Shoe salient in May 1864.
