He served in the Civil War; enlisting in Jackson County in Company G, 62nd North Carolina Infantry Regiment.

Adolphus and members of his unit were captured as Prisoners of War on 09 Sep 1863 at Cumberland Gap, Tennessee. He was transferred to Camp Douglas, Illinois - A Union Prisoner of War camp named in honor of Stephen A Douglas; the famous Illinois Legislator and Abraham Lincoln rival. This camp would become known as "Eighty Acres of Hell". Adolphus would not be released until 16 Jun 1865, after spending some 21-months in brutal misery.

Some joker gave Donnie a Flag on his comment, can someone please remove that. He's only asking for help to learn
I unflaged it. Probably was unintentional.  G2G is a safe place to ask for help and we are happy to give it!
