This company of men fought in the Battle of Lookout Mountain that was overrun by Union troops. During this battle on November 24, 1863, he was captured by enemy troops, only six months after he was hospitalized in Chattanooga, Tennessee by order of the surgeon. After his capture, he eventually transferred to Rock Island Prison in Illinois, where he remained until the end of the war.
After the war, he walked home to Choctaw County where he spent the remainder of his life raising his family, farming, and attending the duties of his ministry. Joseph Claud Peacock founded the Woods Springs Baptist Church in Choctaw County.
He and his Wife Theldra are buried in the cemetery there.
