In 1878 he founded the "Chatham Record," a local newspaper. He attended UNC 1862-64 and then joined the Confederate Army during the Civil War. He was a Courier in Company I of the 32nd North Carolina Regiment, and he participated in one of the last actions of the War when he delivered Robert E. Lee's order of cease fire to General William R. Cox.

Beneath this is written "(3)" in pencil (perhaps the third copy printed?). A simply produced book. Printed on rectos only with the verso blank. The type appears to be in blue or purple ink which nearly bleeds through in places on the verso, and it has the appearance of a self-typed production (or a copy of a self typed production). Typing corrections are evident, and these changes bleed through more boldly on the versos. Dedicated to Eileen. Typed on the dedication page is, "This copy is for Wilfrid and Gerald Gibson, Christmas 1921." The book was not actually officially published until 1947.
