    John Columbus Mitchell entered the Confederate Army in April, 1862 at the
    Fayette County, Alabama, courthouse and served
    as a Private with Company K, 26th Alabama Infantry Regiment in the Shenandoah
    Valley area of Virginia with General Thomas
    "Stonewall" Jacksons command,and served in the battles of Williamsburg, Seven
    Pines, Seven Days Battle around Richmond,
    South Mountain, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville,and Gettysburg.
    Company K was known as the "Looxapalila
    Guards" after the river that flows through Lamar County
    His unit was returned to Alabama or South Georgia for a short time in late
    1863 or early 1864, but was detailed to the battle of
    Atlanta and Jonesboro, Georgia in the spring and summer of 1864. His unit was
    with General John Bell Hoods command as the
    Army moved from Georgia to Tennessee, and was involved in the battle of
    Nashville, Tennessee in December, 1864. Private
    John Columbus Mitchell absented himself from his unit from December, 1864,
    until he was captured and paroled at LaGrange,
    Tennessee, in May, 1865 after the war had ended.
    It is thought that Private John Columbus Mitchell was a blacksmith in the
    Confederate Army and that he received an injury to one
    of his eyes from a hot metal chip while smiting.
