Wounded on May 6, 1864 at the Battle of the Wilderness. He was loading his musket behind a tree, when a bullet came along and clipped his finger off,leaving it hanging. He went back to the rear and the surgeons finished amputating it. When it was over, he was too weak to get up and go to the cars by himself, when a young black man came to him, lifted him up and aided him to get to the car.
