An excerpt from his Declaration for Invalid Pension mentions he "Was wounded on the 6th day of April 1862 in battle at Shiloh...by a musket ball through left thigh severing main artery and destroying the muscles of the leg." Davis was acting as the regiment's color bearer at the time. 

He later rose through the ranks to Lieutenant Colonel.  He was actually promoted to Colonel of the regiment, but never mustered in that rank.
