He was appointed from 2nd Lieutenant to 1st Lieutenant on 7 April 1862, the 2nd day of the Battle of Shiloh.  Many soldiers were given on the field promotions to fill the gaps in rank structure caused by casualties.  Thompson was mortally wounded at Battle of Hatchie Bridge on 5 October 1862.  Taken to Bolivar, Tennessee, he died on 10 October 1862 due to those wounds.
