Enlisted as a private in Co. G, 102nd OVI, on 23 February 1864 at age 42. On 24 September 1864, while the regiment was stationed in garrison at Decatur, AL, Trussel was assigned to a detachment sent in relief of Ft. Henderson at nearby Athens, AL, which was under siege by rebel cavalry under the command of CSA Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest. After detraining, the detachment began fighting to gain the fort, and had made good progress, when the fort was unexpectedly surrendered by its commander. Forrest then forced the relief detachment to surrender as well. Trussel was sent to Cahaba Prison, where he died. His remains were later moved to Marietta National Cemetery.
