Mustered in as a Private in Company A, 86th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, he served until his discharge in September 1862, serving in the field in (West) Virginia. He returned to his studies, graduated in 1863, and worked as an educator briefly before returning to fight the Confederacy. He recruited a company that became Company E, 180th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and was commissioned its Captain and commander on October 1, 1864. He served through the end of the war, and was honorably mustered out on July 12, 1865, receiving the brevet of Lieutenant Colonel, US Volunteers. He then attended the University of Michigan, graduating with a degree in law, and was admitted to the Ohio Bar Association in 1866.
