He served during the Civil War first as the Major of the 4th Illinois Volunteer Cavalry, then as Colonel and commander of the 84th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. He was brevetted both Brigadier and Major General, US Volunteers on March 13, 1865 for "gallant and meritorious services during the war".
