He was then taken to Richmond, Virginia and put in Libbie prison for a few days. Later, when being transported to Andersonville, he made his escape, and after three weeks of adventurous travel arrived at Fayetteville, West Virginia, where a company of Union soldiers was stationed, from whence he proceeded to his home in Ulysses, Pennsylvania. After regaining his health he re-enlisted in January 1865, and in the following spring was in the advance the day before General Lee surrendered, 9 April 1865.
