At sixteen years of age, a student at Weedsport, he enlisted in Battery I, 3d N. Y. Light Artillery. His experience during the war possessed more than the usual vicissitudes of a soldier's life, and during an expedition to Plymouth, N. C., he received injuries which culminated in the loss of an eye, and for disability he was discharged in July, 1865, after three years of service. it is a fact worthy of note that he was the youngest of five brothers: William, Aaron, Abner, Judson, and Adin, all of whom were in the service and in the same company and regiment.
