Note: The photo of Barton Mitchell came from Vol 8. No. 3 of Civil War magazine, published in May 1990. It claims the photo came from descendants and was taken before the company was mustered into the 27th, thus accounting for the rank of sergeant on his sleeves. This may be, but if Mitchell, he looks pretty good for his 45 years of age. I've included it as the only published photo of him to date. Steve Russell
