He was elected Captain of Company E, of the Ringold Cavaly, which afterwards became Company F, of the Twenty-second Regiment. Capt. Denny remained in command for three years, with the exception of about eight months when he was sent on detached service to Washington,D. C. Dr. and Mrs. Denny were at Washington at the time of the assassination of President Lincoln, and had intended going to Ford's Theater that night; but fortunately, owing to the Doctor's indisposition, they were not present on that fatal occasion.
