Charles I Hubbs was 18 when he was mustered into Company F on May 29, 1861.
Charles was wounded at the battle of Bull Run.
He was captured and taken with the other captured Minnesotans to prisons in Richmond.
From there he and many other Minnesotans were sent to New Orleans. He must have been involved in a prisoner exchange and returned to the regiment. His tentmate for three years was James Imeson.
At Gettysburg, Charles, Artemus Decker and Henry Burgetorf were detailed to serve with Cushings Battery, (4th U S Artillery). During the fighting, Charles was wounded twice, one of the wounds being in the wrist. This occured on July 3rd, when the Confederates attacked in what has become known as "Picket's charge". The Confederates did manage to infiltrate a part of the Union line, where Cushings Battery was located. It was overrun and many men were hurt, including all three men, Pvts Bergetorf, Decker and Hubbs, from the First Minnesota.
Charles got into trouble a couple of months later. He was court martialed on September 1, 1863. The charge was conduct that was prejudicial. The first specification was that he forged three orders to the sutler for $10, $8 and $5. The second specification stated that he frequently received $10 from the forged orders. He offered no defense and pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to a fine of $11 per month for the rest of his enlistment and to be dishonorably discharged when he term of service was up. $11 was equal to a privates pay, which meant that he received no pay for the rest of the time that he was in the service.
A notation in the record states: "In 1866 prisoner wants an honorable discharge on the grounds of that was all done in the past (his misdeeds)." No record is found about the government's decision.
Charles died on April 12, 1931. He was 87 years, 10 months and 6 days old.
