Lockwood was from Plymouth, CT., when he joined Company H, of the 2nd Connecticut Heavy Artillery in September of 1862. He was promoted to corporal in June 1863 and to sergeant April of 1864. He was discharged in July of 1865.

The 2nd Conn. Heavy Artillery was one of those heavy artillery regiments that served as infantry throughout most of their term of service. They suffered heavily at Cold Harbor and fought at the "breakthrough at Petersburg."
