Enlisted as a sergeant in Co. E, 102nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry, on 12 August 1862 at the age of 30. Sgt. Kennedy was part of a relief expedition that was sent on 24 September 1864 to relieve and reinforce Ft. Henderson at Athens, AL, which was under siege by rebel cavalry under the command of CSA Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest. While the relief detachment was fighting to attain the fort, the fort commander surrendered. Forrest's troops then forced the relief expedition to surrender as well. Most of the troops captured ended up in Cahaba Prison. However, Sgt. Kennedy was sent to Demopolis, AL. He died at Demopolis on 15 March 1865 while still a Prisoner of War.
