In 1863, he took part in the Battle of Missionary Ridge and was Colonel in command of 7th Florida in the Atlanta Campaign. In 1864, he was promoted Brigadier General in command of a brigade in the Army of Tennessee. His last action was in Franklin and the Nashville Campaign as General John Hood's field commander.
