In the early 1860's he was a volunteer in the 1st Regiment, Michigan Engineers and Mechanics. On December 26, 1863 he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served during the Civil War (he applied for a military pension in 1890.) His military service was spent felling trees and building fortifications and military housing.
