Prisoner of War Record Found

Civil War Prisoner of War Record [Ancestry.com link] for Thomas C. Mitchell located at Ancestry.com. This bit of information confirms that he indeed was a prisoner of war as he stated in his pension application and not a deserter as his Compiled Military Service Records state. He was a prisoner at Alton, Illinois. I have not been able to determine his length of stay from these records yet, however.
