C. Carter Smith, Jr. first published the diary of John C. O’Connell in 1964 in TWO NAVAL JOURNALS 1864.
O’Connell helped bring the formidable, but slow steam-powered ram, C.S.S. Tennessee, into battle against Union warships at the Battle of Mobile Bay. Following intense cannon fire from opposing vessels, the O’Connell’s Tennessee was forced to surrender upon receiving massive damage, including loss of steering capability.

First imprisoned aboard Union warships, O’Connell traveled to the U.S. Naval Hospital in Pensacola, then to a prison barracks in New Orleans and, finally on November 6th 1864, to the prison camp on Ship Island. He would occupy a tent near the beach until his exchange six months later.

Every four days, O’Connell has the opportunity to wander the island for a distance of two miles and back, though he says he seldom does. His treatment appears to be tolerable and notes being treated with respect by his captors, but also mentions that the enlisted men are knocked down in '…a shameful manner.'

Food packages from New Orleans livened up his existence, but O’Connell writes of envy as he watches other Confederate prisoners leave the island for permanent prisons elsewhere or a possible return home. Finally on March 2nd, 1865, the naval engineer gets word that an exchange of prisoners has been arranged between sides. John C. O’Connell boards a ship and under a flag of truce sails back to Mobile and away from Ship Island.

Name: James McCree BensonRank: 1st Corporal Company: C
James M Benson was my great grandfather. He was one of the first to join in 1861 from Pickens County Alabama. He was wounded in late summer or early fall at Vicksburg. I would appreciate any info about the 24th not already published online. Oral history state he was firing from a Fort for a fellow that was to short and was wounded in the jaw losing his right eye. He lived until 1904.

Name: Hiram BushRank: Private Company: H
Hiram Bush was a member of the 24th Alabama Infantry Regiment, Company “H” during the Civil War. (Company “H” was called the 'Steele Guards' after John Steele. The company originated in Shelby County, Alabama). He enlisted 15-Apr-1862 in Montevallo, Shelby County, Alabama. Sometime between April and June, he was sick in the interior hospital, he returned to his unit in June, 1862. He was unaccounted for between August and September, 1862, and then he was listed on the prisoner rolls of 25-Oct-1862 at Cairo, Illinois en route for Vicksburg, Mississippi for exchange. On 1-Nov-1862, he was listed among the prisoners exchanged near Vicksburg, Mississippi on board the steamer Emerald. He was possible captured at either the battle of Iuka, Mississippi (Sep. 19-20, 1862) or Corinth, Mississippi (Oct. 3-4, 1862). Hiram later appeared on muster rolls from November, 1862 through February 1863 but on 19-Feb-1863 he was reported as deserted. From his prior records, desertion probably was not the case, as he had previously been reported absent and probable desertion, while in fact; he was a prisoner of war. The next record found was on 10-Aug-1863 when he received $44 pay for the period 1-Jun-1863 to 30-Sep-1863. On 5-Feb-1864, Hiram appeared on a receipt for clothing roll and a muster roll on 1-Apr-1864 at Richmond, Virginia. Records differ by 2 days but Hiram was captured either the 20th or 22nd of May, 1864 at Cassville, Georgia by the 7th Regiment of Ohio which were forces under Maj. Gen. Thomas, Dept. of the Cumberland and was noted in Nashville, Tennessee 28-May-1864 as a prisoner of war. Then, from 30-May-1864 to 8-Jun-1864 he was a prisoner of war at Louisville, Kentucky where he died the 8th or 9th of June, 1864 in the prison hospital of acute dysentery (Chronic Diarrhea). He is buried at Cave Hill National Cemetery on Baxter Avenue in Louisville (Grave #85, range 2, this now is described as CS LOT 267, #57)
Hiram was born about 1828 in Georgia, his parents were believed to be John Bush and Mary Holley, married 13 Jan 1813 in Bulloch Co., Ga. He married Anice Louise Rodgers 19 MAY 1850 in Coosa Co., ALA . His siblings were Solomon Harrison, Elizabeth, Herod, Rebecca Ann, Jasper, Martha and Lizzie Bush. Children: William, Mary Elizabeth & John S. Bush.
