He and his regiment were relocated to Tampa, Florida on 21 May, and assigned to the First Brigade, First Division, Seventh Army Corps under Maj. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee at Camp Cuba Libre, near Jacksonville.
While encamped there, William and nearly 30,000 others endured the extreme heat, lack of fresh food and water, and the omnipresent threat of Yellow Fever and Malaria.
During the evening of 06 June, a riot erupted in Ybor City, between the African-American Buffalo Soldiers and the mostly Cuban population over the soldiers being banned from patronizing their hotels, bars, and brothels.
"I" Company - 2nd Georgia was dispatched to quell the violence; the only military action they would encounter.
On 11 June, the regiment was reassigned to Second Brigade, Third Division, Fourth Army Corps under Maj. Gen. J.J. Coppinger, and awaited their deployment to Cuba.
On 12 August, the U.S. and Spain agreed to an armistice, ending the war.
On 18 August, the regiment left Tampa for Huntsville, Alabama, where they arrived three days later.
After a month in Hunstville, the regiment received orders on 21 September to return to Atlanta, Georgia.
William was mustered out on 30 November in Atlanta with the rank of Private.
The war officially ended on 10 December 1898, with the signing of the Treaty of Paris.
