In March 1862 he was mustered into Company B, of the 20th Battalion, VA Heavy Artillery (Richmond Defenses). He was wounded on June 1, 1862 at Seven Pines. Commissioned Captain and Asst. Quarter Master in “Battery 9” (Richmond Defenses) in August 1862. He also served on staffs of General Johnson and General Early. He died in 1911.
