Albert served in the civil war under 2nd Lieutenant Edgar A. Beach, 2nd U.S. Sharpshooters, Company H, Eleventh Infantry from Vermont. He was wounded in the right thigh on the 27th of October, 1864, at the battle of Boydton Plank Road, Virginia. He lay on the battlefield without covering of any kind, without any thing to eat, and, of course without having his wound dressed, for five days. His sufferings were great, for during the first night it rained very hard. At the expiration of this time he was picked up by the rebels and taken to the Confederate Hospital, Washington Street, Petersburgh, Virginia, where he remained seven days. here he received good treatment and had plenty to eat. From thence he was taken to Richmond and confined in Libby Prison Hospital. While in this prison he suffered considerably, but much less than many other of his comrades did; for making himself known as a member of the Masonic fraternity, he found friends who ministered to his wants. Whilst laying upon the field of battle he was robbed of what money he had, his knife, picket-book, two gold pens and case--and in fact everything he had, even to a half-cent he had carried some ten years. On the 5th of February, 1865, he was paroled.
