    1st Sergeant Charles H. Berry Antebellum resided in Key West, Florida. He left sometime between May and November,1861 and enlisted in Captain Henry Mulrennan’s Florida Volunteers Coast Guards on November 27, 1861 as a Mate.  He served with this organization until April 25th, 1862.

    He was enlisted in Captain Smith’s Company (Key West Avengers), 7th Florida Infantry Regiment on April 25th, 1862 by Major R. B. Thomas at Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida for 3 years or the war.  He is reported as present on all company rolls until an undated roll for the period April 30th, 1862 to November 14th, 1862.  This roll documents his transfer to the C.S. Navy on August 8th, 1862.

    He served in CSS Chattahoochee at Blountstown, Florida until May 27, 1863 when her boiler exploded and she sank.  He was numbered among those killed in the accident. Sixteen members of the crew were killed instantly, scalded to death by the steam. Another was mortally injured, two more were severely injured and another four received minor injuries.

    Those killed immediately were buried in Chattahoochee, where a monument marking their graves can be seen today.
