promoted to captain of Company H on August 20, 1861. His regiment
participated in the Peninsula Campaign, where he was wounded at the Battle
of Gaines' Mill on June 28, 1862. He was promoted to colonel and assumed
command of the 18th Michigan Infantry on August 13, 1862. Doolittle and his
regiment served in the Western Theater for the duration of the war, with
various assignments in Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia. His
troops helped defend Athens, Alabama, against Confederate cavalry under
Joseph Wheeler and Decatur, Alabama, against John Bell Hood.  On April
22, 1865, President Andrew Johnson appointed Doolittle brigadier general of
volunteers to rank from January 27, 1865.[1] President Abraham Lincoln had
nominated Doolittle for the appointment on January 30, 1865 and the U.S.
Senate confirmed the nomination on February 14, 1865 but Lincoln was
unable to make the formal appointment before he was assassinated.[1]
Doolittle was mustered out of the volunteer service on November 30,
1865.[1] On February 24, 1866, President Johnson nominated Doolittle for
appointment to the brevet grade of major general of volunteers, to rank from
