His records show that he was given $22 duty pay, a $25 clothing allowance and a $50 bounty payment for the period Aug-Sep 1862. He was wounded on 17 Sep 1862 at the Battle of Antietam near Sharpsburg, MD, and sent home on sick leave. It was the bloodiest single-day battle in the US history with about 23,000 casualties.
