Fourteenth Regiment, New Hampshire Volunteers, and was afterwards promoted to be first lieutenant. At the close of the war he entered Dartmouth, remained two years, then went West and became connected with educational interests in Missouri. In 1869 he went to Mississippi, was engaged on the editorial staff of "The Mississippi Pilot" at Jackson, and the following year was Superintendent of Instruction for the County of Holmes. During his term of office, four years, public schools were established throughout the county. In 1874 he was elected Clerk of the Circuit Courts, but two years later was compelled, on account of his prominence in Republican political circles, to leave the State with his family. After a short residence in Sioux City, D.T. (Dakota Territory), he went to Chicago, IL, in 1878, practiced law and is now (1881) engaged in the lumber trade with John Loomis & Sons, his residence being at South Evanston.
