Enlisted as a private in Co. D, 102nd OVI, on 11 August 1862 at the age of 19. On 24 September 1864, while the regiment was stationed in Decatur, AL, he was ordered to join a relief expedition sent to relieve the Union garrison at Ft. Henderson in Athens, AL, that was under attack by rebel cavalry under CSA Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest. While the relief detachment was fighting to gain the fort, it was suddenly and unexpectedly surrendered by its commander. Thereafter, the relief column was attacked by Forrest's troops and Pvt. Kochenderfer was captured. He was exchanged on 22 April 1865, and he survived the explosion and sinking of the steamer "Sultana" on 27 April 1865. Mustered out at Camp Chase, OH, on 20 May 1865.
