During the Civil War, William served in Co. F, 1st Vermont Heavy Artillery Regiment, enlisting on 16 July 1862 and being mustered out on 24 June 1865.
The 1st Vermont was the largest of the Vermont regiments, with a total of 2,320 men. It was originally recruited as an infantry regiment in 1862. However, while being assigned to duty in the Northern Defense of Washington, the War Department changed the unit from infantry to artillery. They were stationed in Washington for one year and 8 months, constructing and garrisoning 3 forts (Forts Slocum, Stevens and Totten). After the Battle of the Wilderness, Gen. Ulysses S. Grant summoned all available troops to reinforce the Army of the Potomac. Thus, the 1st Vermont became an infantry regiment again, although they still proudly wore their artillery insignia. The unit fought at Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor, then back to Washington to repulse the attack on Fort Stevens, and Petesburg, among others. Their story is one of a brave and effective fighting group.
