Commencing private practice in Wilmington, Vermont, he moved to Williamsville in 1861 and continued the practice of law. During the American Civil War, Haskins enlisted as a private in Company I, 16th Vermont Infantry on August 23, 1862. He was commissioned first lieutenant on September 20 of that year and served until March 19, 1863, when he resigned on account of disabilities. Haskins returned to Vermont and settled in Brattleboro. He entered the government service as a civil employee in the office of the assistant quartermaster of Volunteers and served in that capacity until the close of the war. After the end of the war Haskins resumed the practice of law. He was appointed a colonel and chief of staff to Governor Peter T.
