He served as a brigadier general in the War of 1812 and afterwards engaged in planting. Moore was one of the founders of the first high schools in Spartanburg District. In 1814, he was elected to the Fourteenth Congress, serving again from 1815 to 1817. Afterwards, he resumed engaging in agricultural pursuits. He died in Moores Station, South Carolina, in 1822 and was interred in Moore's Burying Ground.
