In April 1862 in Talladega County Alabama he joined the 31st Alabama Infantry of the Confederate States of America.

THE THIRTY-FIRST ALABAMA INFANTRY.
This regiment was organized at Talladega, April, 1862, and
reported at Chattanooga; proceeded with the army at Knoxville,
took part in the fight at Cumberland Gap, June 18, 1862, and at
Tazewell, August 6th.
It was in Kentucky, but not in the midst of the fighting. In
Mississippi it fought well and suffered heavy loss at Port
Gibson. It suffered all the privations of the long siege of
Vicksburg and was surrendered with that place, having lost
severely; when exchanged, was assigned to the army of Tennessee
and brigaded under General Pettus; took a prominent part in the
Dalton-Atlanta campaign.
It went with Hood into Tennessee, suffering severely at Columbia
and Nashville, and was in the rear guard of the army on its
return. Sent into the Carolinas, it fought brilliantly at
Bentonville with considerable loss, and finally surrendered at
Greensboro, with but a small remnant of the over-full regiment
that started out.

Battles:
Fought on 6 Apr 1862 at Shiloh, TN.
Fought on 1 May 1863 at Port Gibson, MS.
Fought on 16 May 1864 at Resaca, GA.
Fought on 15 Jun 1864 at Big Shanty, GA.
