Private Hawkins was wounded at the Battle of the Wilderness on May 5th, 1864. By the fall of 1864 the ranks of the 19th Indiana were so depleted from combat casualties and sickness they were folded into the 20th Indiana Infantry. James was moved into Company A of that regiment where he served until his muster out on June 5th, 1865.


He filed for a pension in July of 1875.
