Green was the son of William A. and Elizabeth "Pounder" Bingham. He was born in Lawrence Co., AL. His family migrated to Hohenlinden, Webster Co., Mississippi when he was two years old. He married Martha Rush in 1851 in present-day Webster Co., Mississippi. They became parents of five children.
Green moved his young family to Louisiana sometime prior to 1854, moving back to Mississippi prior to 1858. Family legend has it that he was dissatisfied with the area and regretted the decision to move.
On September 13, 1861, at Atlanta, Mississippi, Green enlisted as a Private in Co. C, 24th Reg't, Mississippi Vols. On November 1, 1861, Green was promoted to Corporal. Green was admitted to a C.S.A. Post Hospital at Dalton, Georgia suffering from "icterus", November 21, 1862, and was returned to duty on November 30th.
His regiment was engaged in many battles. They were moved from Meridian to Tupelo, to Florida and back to Mississippi and on to Chattanooga. On December 31, 1862, after many days of marching, they were engaged in the Battle of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, also known as the Battle of Stones River. Green was reported killed there at midnight the morning of December 31st. Along with the other Confederate casualties, he was buried on the battlefield. In 1867, under the direction of Capt. Bowin Arnold, they were moved to the original Confederate Cemetery two miles south of Murfreesboro. Then in 1890, the fallen Confederates [most were unknown] were disinterred and removed to Evergreen Cemetery, their final resting place. All the Confederates are buried in an area called the "Confederate Circle of Heroes". There is a large monument in the center of the Circle, and each state has a marker on the outer edge of the Circle.
In 1993, a great-granddaughter of Green erected a military marker in his honor at the Double Springs Cemetery in Webster County, Mississippi where the Bingham family worshipped.
