By the fall of 1864 the ranks of the 19th Indiana were so depleted from combat casualties and sickness they were folded into the ranks of the 20th Indiana Infantry. Francis was moved to Company C of that regiment. Just as the war was about to end he was wounded a third time on April 6th, 1865 during the Appomattox campaign.
