I found documents for him being buried as a prisoner. I also found a Samuel F. Mitchell that enlisted in Road Island in 1862. Do you know for sure were this individual was born or lived. Can family determine if in fact he was from Road Island. Additional information would help.
I have also found a document that shows, Mitchell, Samuel*, *Citizen Prisoner. That document was in U.S., Civil War Roll of Honor, 1861-1865 for Samuel Mitchell
Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery, Kansas 417
I have very little information on him, and that all indicates Georgia. I do not think the Rhode Island person is the same.
He might have been in the Wildcat District of Georgia in the 1840's. Might have married Susan (Sausian Redbird) about 1842.
At this point I have very little documented evidence.
I'm trying to connect him to Susan Mitchell (Sausian Mitchell 1819-1900) b. 28 Aug 1818, Clarke County, Georgia. d. 6 Apr 1900, Winston Co., AL.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm new to this website, so bear with me.

Dear Mr. Dickinson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 5 series of the Fort Leavenworth Provost Marshal in the Records of U.S. Army Continental Commands (Record Group 393) that may contain the information you seek.

We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
I have a lot of information on this person. He’s my great great grandfather. The one piece of information I can not seem to get is why he was imprisoned just after being discharged from the military. Then he died there. I’ve requested records from everywhere and never get a response. I do have a long family tree though if you are interested.
