1861-1865, U.S. Civil War Soldiers: Name: James H. Mitchell, Private, Confederate, Georgia, Company E, 15th Regiment, Georgia Infantry, National Archives, Film Number: M226 roll 43.

James Henry Mitchell (1826-1912), my great-grandfather, enlisted on 15 Jul 1861 at Sparta, GA. Served as a private in Company E, 15th Georgia Infantry, CSA. His records show that he was given $22 duty pay, a $25 clothing allowance and a $50 bounty payment for the period Aug-Sep 1862.

He was wounded on 17 Sep 1862 at the Battle of Antietam near Sharpsburg, MD, and sent home on sick leave. It was the bloodiest single-day battle in the US history with about 23,000 casualties. After 194 days furlough at home he returned to duty near Richmond in the spring of 1862. He received 33 cents/day while on leave.

Sometime in late 1863 he was carried on the rolls as absent without leave for an undetermined period. Later he was again present for duty and served from 1 Jan 1864 until the end of the war in April 1865.
