They arrived in Richmond on June 2, 1861 and were initially stationed at Williamsburg. By 1864 he was a corporal. the 10th Georgia was part of the Army of Northern Virginia and participated in many of the major, and some of the bloodiest, battles of the Civil War, including Sharpsburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and the Wilderness Campaign. When told the 10th Georgia had broken in one battle, the division commander, General Kershaw, reportedly refused to believe the report: 'It is false, the Tenth Georgia was the first to stem the tide at the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, North Anna, Topotomoy and Cold Harbor. It NEVER BREAKS.' (Col. A.J. McBride, 'Tenth Georgia at Spotsylvania'. Atlanta Journal, July 20, 1901.)
