He was promoted to major in January, 1864 and commanded the regiment in numerous battles. on August 18, 1864, the regiment was engaged in fierce fighting at the battle of Weldon Railroad, Virginia. The entire color guard was shot down. In an act of conspicuous bravery, Mobley received a serious neck wound while saving his regiment's flag from capture by the rebels. his heroism earned commendations from his superiors in their official reports.
