He spent most of his career on the eastern shores of Maryland and Virginia, except for a few times when he was asked to reinforce the Army of the Potomac. He led a brigade to Gettysburg and was assigned to the 12th Corps where fought on Culp's Hill. After a brief service at Harper's Ferry he was returned back to his old post and briefly commanded the Corps.Early in the Overland Campaign he was sent with reinforcements to Cold Harbor where he commanded a division until relieved by Grant's order and sent back to Maryland. From there he led a force in the defense of Washington against Early's raid. He then finished out the war in Maryland.
