He attended the Newburgh grammar schools and Academy, and at the outbreak of the Civil War was preparing for college at Claverack Collegiate Institute. But instead of carrying out his plans in that direction he raised a company of volunteers for the 124th N. Y. Infantry Regiment, and on the 5th of Sept., 1862, was mustered into the United States service with that organization and served with it to the end of the war, filling successively the grades of Captain, Major, Lieutenant-Colonel and Colonel. He was slightly wounded in the head while in command of his company at Chancellorsville, May 3, 1863; received a severe flesh wound in the leg while commanding regiment in charge at Spottsylvania, May 12, 1864, and was shot through body commanding 124th N. Y. Vols. and Berdan's 2nd Regiment of Sharpshooters while in the act of forming them for a charge at battle of Boydton Road, Oct. 22, 1864. After participating in over a score of battles and witnessing the surrender of Lee's army at Appomattox, he was permitted, by special order of Secretary of War, to take his regiment back to Orange County and disband it at Washington's Headquarters at Newburgh, N. Y. Since the war he has served one year in the Newburgh City Board of Education, three years as Sheriff of Orange County, two years as Mayor of the City of Newburgh, and five years in the Orange County Board of Supervisors.
