He was assigned to company F, 62nd Regiment, IL Vol Inf. The 62nd was organized at Anna, Illinois then moved to Cairo, IL. The regiment served in TN and MS, where George was stricken with a nearly fatal case of "Typhoid Fever". When he recovered, he re-joined his company at Little Rock, AR and then to Indian Territory.
George learned to read and write in the Army, became 2nd Lieutenant, 1st Lt., Provost Marshall, and was discharged as a Captain on 6 Mar 1866.
