He was conscripted into Confederate service on July 20th, 1862, at Columbia, South Carolina, at the age of 17, and was mustered into service as a Private in Company M of the Palmetto Sharpshooters Regiment, South Carolina Volunteers. He served with the regiment in Virginia, taking part in the Battle of Second Manassas (Virginia) and Sharpsburg (Maryland). He was killed in action on September 17th, 1862, at the battle of Sharpsburg (Antietam), Maryland, and was initially buried by his comrades in a little orchard opposite of Mrs. Kennedy's House near the town. His remains were later dis-interred and reburied at the Washington Confederate Cemetery in Hagerstown, Maryland, along with other Confederate dead from the battle.
