Civil War - Enlisted on 14 August 1862 at Newburgh, Orange County, New York; mustered in on 5 September 1862, Company G, 124th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment as a Private; promoted to Corporal on 1 April 1863; wounded in action at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Spotsylvania County, Virginia on 3 May 1863; sent to McDougal Hospital, Fort Schuyler, Bronx, New York for continued wound treatment on August 1863; transferred to the Veteran Reserve Corps, 2nd Battalion, 145th Regiment on 6 April 1864; mustered out on 13 August 1865 at DeCamp General Hospital, David's Island, Westchester County, New York.

"Case 536. — Corporal L. P. Miller, Co. G, 124th New York, aged 27 years, was wounded at Chancellorsville, May 3, 1863, by a minie ball, which entered the left knee one-half inch external to the inner condyle of the femur and emerged two inches anteriorly, bruising the bone. Surgeon D. W. Bliss, U. S. V., reported his admission to Armory Square Hospital, Washington, May 8th, with the knee joint in a swollen condition. Irrigation was made by water dressings, and subsequently tincture of iodine was applied to the knee. By June 6th the wound had nearly healed, but there was considerable effusion in the joint and contraction of the flexor tendons. The patient subsequently passed through several hospitals, was assigned to the Veteran Reserve Corps March 2, 1864, and ultimately discharged August 13, 1865, and pensioned. Examining surgeons report swelling of the knee, owing partly to enlargement of bone and partly to edematous condition of the tissues; also anchylosis from injury of the bony structures and from contraction of the tendons and ligaments." -- The Medical and Surgical History of the War of the Rebellion. Part III, Volume II. (3rd Surgical volume) by U.S. Army Surgeon General's Office.
