He enlisted 16 Mar 1864 and was mustered out 25 Feb. 1866. The next of kin on his Veteran's Grave Registration (#405) was Herman North of Neillsville, Wisconsin.

May, 1864, the Fourth Battery was assigned to the Artillery Brigade of the First Division/Eighteenth Army Corps, and took part with that Division in the advance then being made on Richmond and Petersburg. The battery participated in various movements of that organization of the Union forces, among them the battles of Drewry's Bluff, May 12-16, 1864; assault on Petersburg, June 16, 1864, and Malvern Hill, July 14, 1864. The Fourth Battery further accompanied the Union Cavalry on several raids about Richmond, and one occasion passed entirely around that city. The Fourth Battery was mustered out of the service of the United States at Richmond, VA, on the 3rd of July 1865, returned to Madison, WI and was disbanded shortly thereafter.
