He was one of many Nothern politicians and Army officers who headed to the South after the end of the war as a "carpetbagger". He was elected to represent Mississippi's 2nd District in the United States House of Representatives, serving from 1873 to 1875. After an unsuccessful bid to be re-elected (having been defeated by Guilford Wiley Wells for the seat), he moved to Chicago and became a member of a successful brokerage firm.
