Upon graduating from West Point, and with the exception of the Civil War years during which he was a brigadier general of volunteers, Carr spent his active military life on the American frontier. He was "perhaps the most famous and experienced Indian fighter of the quarter century which followed the Civil War." He received the thanks of the Nebraska, Colorado and New Mexico legislatures for bringing peace within their borders.
