He lived in Burke County, NC throughout the Revolutionary War. He entered Revolutionary Service as a volunter militiaman in 1776 (1778?) in Captain William Penland's Company of Burke Co. They marched to Cathey's Fort where they were stationed for about two months. He then marched with Capt Penland across the Blue Ridge into the Cherokee Country [on the waters of the French Broad River]. While on a hunting party [near Bull's Mountain] [while in the act of reloading his gun again] he was shot in the back by a [Cherokee] Indian and left for dead by Captain Penland and nine other men. Penland and his [other nine] men fled back to the fort [with Henry's horse]. Wakefield, despite his condition, managed to make it back in about six days, being in 'a very low state.' He was taken back to his home. In the year following (1779) he joined the company of light horse under Captain Thomas Kennedy of McDowell's Regiment and advanced to Black River to assist Gen Rutherford in keeping the Tories in check. While there , news came of more Indian incursions on the frontier and he along with 100 men rushed home to help protect the frontier. He later enlisted in Capt John Russell's company of McDowell's Burke Regiment and marched toward Ramsour's Mill, where the Tories were gathering. They arrived just after the battle was fought, June 20, 1780. He stated that their arriving too late was due to the action of his guide, Capt Irwin (Alexander Irwin?). After he was out in his own neighborhood attempting to subdue the Tories he joined Capt Russell's co of McDowell's Regiment in the fall of 1780, marched to Cowpens, and then to King's Mountain. he was in the battle of King's Mountain (Oct 7, 1780), and was wounded in the mouth. After the battle he assisted in conveying the prisoners to the Moravian Towns. He was discharged and returned to his home in Burke County. . .In 1796 moved to Sumner County, TN and then to Smith County, TN (later Macon County).

He lived in Burke County, NC throughout the Revolutionary War. He entered Revolutionary Service as a volunter militiaman in 1776 (1778?) in Captain William Penland's Company of Burke Co. They marched to Cathey's Fort where they were stationed for about two months. He then marched with Capt Penland across the Blue Ridge into the Cherokee Country [on the waters of the French Broad River]. While on a hunting party [near Bull's Mountain] [while in the act of reloading his gun again] he was shot in the back by a [Cherokee] Indian and left for dead by Captain Penland and nine other men. Penland and his [other nine] men fled back to the fort [with Henry's horse]. Wakefield, despite his condition, managed to make it back in about six days, being in 'a very low state.' He was taken back to his home. In the year following (1779) he joined the company of light horse under Captain Thomas Kennedy of McDowell's Regiment and advanced to Black River to assist Gen Rutherford in keeping the Tories in check. While there , news came of more Indian incursions on the frontier and he along with 100 men rushed home to help protect the frontier. He later enlisted in Capt John Russell's company of McDowell's Burke Regiment and marched toward Ramsour's Mill, where the Tories were gathering. They arrived just after the battle was fought, June 20, 1780. He stated that their arriving too late was due to the action of his guide, Capt Irwin (Alexander Irwin?). After he was out in his own neighborhood attempting to subdue the Tories he joined Capt Russell's co of McDowell's Regiment in the fall of 1780, marched to Cowpens, and then to King's Mountain. he was in the battle of King's Mountain (Oct 7, 1780), and was wounded in the mouth. After the battle he assisted in conveying the prisoners to the Moravian Towns.
