Amos Mizell was a Great War veteran who served in the Confederate Army. After the war he founded the Tin Hats, a veterans' association that was very influential on the right wing of Confederate politics. Prior to the 1921 election, Mizell brokered a summit meeting between Jake Featherston of the Freedom Party and Willy Knight of the Redemption League. He told Knight that the Tin Hats intended to endorse Featherston for President and hoped that the three groups could form a national right-wing coalition with the Freedom Party as senior partner. Knight agreed.
In the run-up to the 1927 election, Mizell again supported Featherston, but much more tepidly, as his popularity had been damaged by his association with Grady Calkins and the assassination of Wade Hampton V in 1922.
In 1933, Mizell opposed Featherston, but by then had lost much of his relevance politically as the Tin Hats had been heavily infiltrated by the Freedom Party Stalwarts and Featherston was unequivocally the leader of the CS's right wing.
