He learned his trade of pattern-maker at the age of sixteen, and has worked at it ever since, except the time he was in the army. He enlisted in 1859 in Co. G. 2d U. S. A., serving five years. Prior to 1861, he was stationed at Ft. Mackinaw. At that time he was ordered to Washington, and detailed as body guard to President Lincoln, where he remained until the first battle of Bull Run, when he took part in the first advances. He was taken prisoner at Chancellorsville, May 4, 1863, and exchanged Sept. 29, of the same year. He was in eleven general engagements and never received a wound or even a scratch.
