At the start of the Civil War, he accepted the commission of Captain, and was quickly promoted to the rank of Colonel and recruited the 18th Louisiana Infantry Regiment. Wounded at the April 1862 Battle of Shiloh, he returned to service as a Brigadier General in the Lafourche, Teche, and Red River campaigns.
