General Carr participated in the battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and distinguished himself at the Battle of Gettysburg, when he held his position with his troops after being wounded. He commanded 3rd division III Corps in the autumn campaigns of 1863 and a garrison of the Army at the Appomattox Campaign. In March 1865, he was brevetted Major General of US Volunteers for his leadership and dedication to service.
