Moses Tyson was residing in Columbus County when he enlisted in the Confederate army on March 7, 1862. Shortly after he was assigned to Company E, 36th Regiment North Carolina State Troops (3rd N.C. Artillery), he was listed as having deserted from Fort Caswell. Moses soon returned to his unit and served until he was wounded in the right arm by a gunshot at Fort Fisher on January 15, 1865. Moses was captured and confined at Point Lookout, Md. He was released after taking the Oath of Allegiance on May 15, 1865.
