He was one of the first eo enlist under the call of the President for 75,000 men, and participated in the first battles of our country. At the expiration of his service he obtained orders for recruiting a company for the 7th Reg't., which being accomplished, he was unanimously chose their Capt., and with the regiment soon left the State for Santa Rosa Island, Florida. While at that station and vicinity he was much of the time in command of the regiment as Capt. commanding.
