Answering President Abraham Lincoln's initial call for troops to help preserve the Union he enlisted as a Private in Company G, 2nd New Jersey Militia on April 28, 1861, and served through the July 1861 First Bull Run Campaign, where his unit was held in reserve and saw no action.

He fought in the 1862 Peninsular Campaign, participating in the Battles of Williamsburg, Fair Oaks, and the Seven Days Battle. When 2nd Lieutenant Adolph Chazzote was killed in action in the June 25, 1862 Battle of Oak Grove, Edward Dingler became the acting 2nd Lieutenant of his Company.
