Pvt.,James W. Brandenburg was a Veteran of the Civil War and fought on the Confederate side with the 1st Battalion Arkansas Calvary (Stirman"s) Company "D". He Mustered in 26 October 1861 at Fayetteville, Arkansas and Mustered out 26 May 1865. He was captured 25 December 1863 by the Union Army at Champion's Hill, MS., and became a prisoner or war until 26 May 1865. Jim went to the Army when he was twenty-one and was taken prisoner, spent seven months in Fort Lookout in Maryland. He happened to be in the Rebel parole list so the Yankees traded the same number of our prisoners for the same number of theirs. He was then sent to Texas to take care of Press Pyett who had been wounded.

He was a Farmer in the Aravaipa Canyon in Eastern Pinal County about half way between Winkelman and Mammoth, Arizona.

Brandenburg Mountain is named after him. It is located at N32.884511 and W-110.595933.
