At some unspecified date Stratton was promoted to Sergeant. During the initial attacks on Petersburg, Stratton was wounded by a cannonball and had to have both arms amputated. He was discharged for wounds on September 27, 1864.

After the war he returned to New York where he married in 1865. He worked as a minister and later moved to Washington, D.C. He died there on June 13, 1874 and was buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Washington.  [ad][ph:L]
