Private Fort was wounded in the left thigh by a minnie ball while storming the works at Petersburg Virginia on June 18, 1864.  In the fall of 1864 the ranks of the 19th Indiana were so depleted they were folded into the 20th Indiana Infantry. David was put in Company C of that regiment and served there until his muster out on July 12th, 1865 holding the rank of Sergeant.


David filed for a pension in June of 1880.
