CONFEDERATE ARKANSAS TROOPS
14th Regiment, Arkansas Infantry (Powers')
14th (Mitchell's-Powers') Infantry Regiment was organized during the fall of 1861 with 939
officers and men recruited in the northwestern region of the state. It fought at Elkhorn Tavern
and later moved east of the Mississippi River. The regiment reported 17 casualties out of the 116
engaged at Iuka, and there were
12 wounded and 2 missing at Corinth. It was then assigned to Beall's
Brigade, Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana, and in April, 1863, united with Crockett's
18th and Lyles' 23rd Arkansas Regiments. This command was captured at Port Hudson on July 9. After being
exchanged, the 14th was not reorganized. Its commanders were Colonels Eli Dodson, M. C.
Mitchell, and Frank P. Powers; Lieutenant Colonel Pleasant Fowler; and Majors John Allen, E. H.
Messick, and J. H. Messick.
