A long time officer in the United States Army, he served from his graduation from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York in 1819 to his retirement in midst of the Civil War in 1863, seeing action during the Mexican War. When the Civil War began he was the Lieutenant Colonel of the 2nd United States Regular Artillery.
