    • During the Civil War, Joseph served in the Union as a member of Company K, 65th New York Infantry. He enlisted at Tiffin, Ohio, and was mustered in 3 August 1861. He was discharged for disability 29 July 1862 at Harrison's Landing, Virginia.

      New York's 65th Regiment also was known as the 1st U.S. Chasseurs, and wore the numeral "1" on its uniform. The regiment left New York at the end of August 1861, and would spend most of its term in the 6th Corps of the Army of the Potomac. The 65th participated in all the major campaigns of the Eastern Theater. It was present at the Seven Days, Malvern Hill, Antietam, both battles at Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, Cedar Creek, and the final agony of Lee's army.

      The regiment left New York for Washington 27 August 1861, was assigned to the 3d provisional brigade until Sept. 19, when it became a part of Graham's brigade, Buell's division, and in March, 1862, joined the advance to the Peninsula as a part of the 2nd brigade, 1st division, 4th corps. It was present at the siege of Yorktown and active during the Seven Days' battles, with a loss of 68 in killed, wounded and missing. At Antietam it was again engaged, but did not occupy an exposed position, and during the month of Sept., 1862, the division was transferred to the 6th corps, in which it became the 3d division. The 65th served in the 3d brigade until December and was then assigned to the 1st brigade.
