He was promoted to Major in 1864 and was mustered out at Little Rock, Arkansas on 3 July 1865. Shortly afterwards he was brevetted Colonel by the President for meritorious conduct during the war. He practiced medicine after the war and in 1877 moved to Kansas City, Missouri. See a lengthy biography and his exploits during the war in "United States Biographical Dictionary and Portrait Gallery of Eminent and Self-Made Men." Missouri Volume.
