In 1863, Carroll took command of the Gibraltar Brigade, which he led until being badly wounded at Spotslyvania.
He was leading a reconnassance in force of the Old Mule Shoe on May 13th, the day after the massive assault, and was shot and wounded. His wounds would effectively put him out of frontline duty for the rest of the war.
