  21. He mustered in on 14 November 1861 at Laclede, Missouri and served in the same company as his son, Louis, during the first three years of the Civil War. He participated in battles at Corinth and Shiloh. At Shiloh, he and members of his company and regiment fought in the "Hornet's Nest", an important Union position that was held so that other regiments of Ulysses Grant could retreat to safer ground during the battle. John was captured and held "in an open place during the remainder of the day and all night during a cold rain without any shelter, and marched next day about 25 miles, through mud and rain, and without anything to eat, and thence by railroad to Mobile, Alabama. During this period he became "sick, and seemed to give under exposure" and "never seemed to recover his health again" . He was later transferred to the Cahaba prison, near Birmingham, Alabama, until 2 May 1862 then was sent to Macon, Georgia. He was paroled at Montgomery, Alabama, on 28 May 1862, then was assigned to Benton Barricks in St. Louis, Missouri. He rejoined his company in the field near Nashville, Tennessee, on 25 Jan 1863.

    He re-enlisted in January 1864, at which time another son, Samuel, joined his company on 12 Mar 1864. They both served until the end of the war. John mustered out in New York City, New York, on 17 Jul 1865. Louis died of typhoid fever at Atlanta. All participated in battles near Chattanooga, Tennesssee, and Atlanta, Georgia.
