He re-enlisted at Edinburg on 11 March 1863 as a Wagoner in Chew's Artillery. Perry was present on all of the Muster Rolls for 1863. In January and February of 1864, he was absent on furlough. He then returned. On the last available Muster Roll, he was present from May until the end of August, 1864.

After the Confederate surrender at Appomattox Court House, he was paroled on 21 April 1865 at Mt. Jackson, Virginia.

Perry was 63 years old and living at Hupp in Rockingham County when he filed a pension application of 14 May 1900. He stated his disabilities as "infirmities of age and by being permanently disabled in the left hand and wrist by accident & kidney trouble."
