In 1862, he joined the Confederate Army as a Lieutenant and served in the Trans-Mississippi Department. After the war he returned to farming and teaching in Northwest Arkansas. In 1876, Mitchell moved to Little Rock and became editor of the Arkansas Gazette. Two years later he left the Gazette and purchased the Arkansas Democrat.
