He served in the military Company A, 16th Regiment, Tennessee Volunteers, CSA on 24 May 1861 in Smithville, Dekalb Co., TN. Daniel was a Confederate soldier in the American Civil War. He being from DeKalb County, Tennessee, enlisted in the Confederate Army at Smithville for a year, and was sent to Estell Springs near Tullahoma, Tennessee. On may 24, 1861, he was placed in Company A under Captain L. N. Savage and sent to Camp Trousdale north of Nashville where his company was organized into the 16th Regiment of the Tennessee Volunteers under Col. John H. Savage in June 1861.
The latter part of April, 1862, Daniel's year of enlistment expired, but a Confederate conscript law was passed at Richmond which retained men of his age in military service for the duration of the war.
Daniel was wounded at the battle of Chickamauga and left for dead. A story passed down through his descendants related that after the battle, nothern soldiers looking for their wounded and dead, found him alive sitting humped over at the foot of a tree with a bullet hole through his chest and back. When offered medical aid, he refused it while saying that he wanted to get on with the business of killing damn yankees. He was taken prisoner, however, and given medical care which involved drawing a silk cloth through his chest to clean the wound.
His discharge from federal prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, dated November 20, 1865, states that he enrolled in the U.S. Infantry, on October 20, 1864, for a year. It may be that he did this to escape hard prison life. One unofficial report stated that he worked in the nothern military mail service after being taken prisoner.

General Notes: Louis was born into a family that was considered fairly wealthy at that time and the federal census records support that fact, showing that they owned a large amount of personal and real property. Louis enlisted as a confederate soldier in the American Civil War on September 17, 1861 at Hickory Grove, Alabama. He was assigned to Company A, 6th Alabama Infantry, CSA. He was wounded in the neck or collarbone and in his left foot during the war. His wounds were received at the Battle of Seven Pines, Virginia, and at the Battle of Cedar Run, Virginia. He was discharged from the army in April, 1865.
In a story passed down through the family, Louis took his personal slave into the war with him to care for him and carry his rifle and other belongings for him when he was in the field. This same story relates how he was disinherited by his family when he married a poor country girl (Martha) instead of the class of girl his parents wanted him to marry. The federal census records seem to support this story since they show him owning no personal or real property after he was married to Martha.
Even though he was well educated and was a school teacher, he spent most of his life after marrying Martha moving from place to place working in textile mills as a laboror. At one time, he taught at a Woman's College that was located at Oak Bowery, Chambers County, Alabama. Even though he was well educated, he never taught any of his children to read or write.
