Son of George H and Amanda H Laskell Edgerton
On September 1, 1862, Charles mustered in as a Sargent in Company C, 10 Regiment, Vermont volunteers.

He contracted scarlet fever, and died in the US Army's Islington Lane Hospital in Philadelphia. In "Philadelphia and the Civil War: Arsenal of the Union" (2011)author Anthony Joseph Waskie explains that Islington Lane was familiarly known as the 'smallpox hospital', as soldiers with infectious diseases were transferred there from other hospitals in the city.
