At the age of 40 Delany began the practice of medicine, which he would continue on and off for the rest of his life. Despite his bitter opposition to the American Colonization Society and its colony, Liberia, Delany kept open the possibility of settling elsewhere in Africa.

President Abraham Lincoln appointed him as a major in the infantry in charge of recruiting all-African American Union units.
