Having the rank of a sergeant at the battle of Christler's Field in 1813, he distinguished himself there so as to merit and receive promotion, and being transferred to one of the Infantry Regiments, he was soon appointed the adjutant of it, in which capacity he served eighteen years, and was for several years known as the "father of adjutants." When promoted he was ordered to Mackinac, in the command of which station he remained until his death.
