Private Harter was killed instantly when a shell crashed into his chest at the Battle of Antietam. His identity was lost at some time before the dead soldiers were moved to the national cemetery. He is probably in a grave marked "Unknown" at the Antietam National Cemetery.

His brother John F. Harter also served in Company E.
