In 1776 while on a fishing voyage, the vessel in which he sailed was captured by the frigate Lively, and with the crew, carried to Boston, then in possession of the British. He made his escape from the frigate into the town, and over the Charles River to the American lines, and then enlisted in the American army, in which he continued until the close of the war, being with Montgomery at Quebec, at Ticonderoga, at the capture of Burgoyne, at the battles of Brandywine and Monmouth and also served in Rhode Island and Maine.

He was repeatedly chosen Representative and Senator to the General Court of Massachusetts, was appointed by the Legislature Major General of the l0th Division and by Governor Sullivan Sheriff of Hancock County in Maine.
