Perrin was a government expediter, sent to New Mexico in 1861 by the United States Secretary of War, Simon Cameron, on a secret mission to help arm New Mexico Civil War troops as the Union prepared for battle in the Southwestern Theater. Perrin worked closely with Carson in these efforts and remained with Carson's command in New Mexico through 1862.
