He served in the North Carolina Continental Infantry as a Private during the American Revolution. He enlisted in Wilkes County, North Carolina for three months in Captain John Hamlin's Company, Colonel Benjamin Cleveland's regiment; in 1781 in Captain Alexander Gordan's Company, Colonel Joseph McDowell's Regiment. He was in the battles of Crosscreek, the surrender of Ninety-six and Eutaw Springs, North Carolina. -------------------- Because of the mother's name, this is probably NOT the same James Garrison of 1747 who served in the NC militia during the Rev.
