Emerson was a farmer in Topsfield, Maine.
During the Civil War, he served as a Private in Co. C, 3rd Maine Infantry Regiment, enlisting 10 September 1863 at the age of 28. He was wounded 5 May 1864 during the Battle of the Wildreness in Virginia. As a result of that injury, his left arm was amputated. Emerson was honorably discharged 13 December 1864.
It has been said of the 3rd Maine that "Perhaps no regiment from the state saw more fighting or rendered more distinguished service." This regiment took part in most of the important battles involving the Army of the Potomac, including such battles as 2nd Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, the Wilderness and Gettysburg, to name only a few. At Gettysburg, as the second day's fighting drew to a close, a Union Army General declared that "The little 3d Me. saved the army today."
One of the more memorable events in the life of the 3rd Maine took place at their encampment near Flag Hill, Virginia. The soldiers mounted a stove-pipe on wheels. Enemy gunners, mistaking the stove-pipe for an actual cannon, fired 12 shots at it. Thereafter, the 3rd Maine was known as the "Stove-Pipe Artillery."
