Adam and his brother Robert were both enrolled for military service during in the War Between the States in Fort Wayne, Allen County, Indiana on 24 September 1861 by Captain Dawson. They were both mustered in that same day by Major Carpenter. He was assigned to Company G, 30th Indiana Volunteer Infantry Regiment. He was described as being 24 years old with hazel eyes, light hair, 5 foot 9 inches in height with a light complexion.

Not long after the New Year of 1862 began, Adam fell gravely ill while the 30th was stationed in Louisville, Kentucky and soon died in in the hospital there on January 24th, the victim of pestilence in the form of Typhoid Fever (even though there is one reference to it having been the Measles). Adam was laid to rest in a section of the Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville that would evolve into a National Cemetery.

It was near Clay Village October 4 and four days later participated in the Battle of Perryville, Kentucky on October 8 (in reserve). The 30th was then marched back to Nashville, Tennessee, October 22-November 7, and remained on duty there until December 26.

It was then assigned duty at Whiteside, Tyner's Station, and Blue Springs, Tennessee, until April 1864.
