Charles Burton Mitchel III was the 12th President of the Confederate States from June 1922 to March 1934. He was the first president to hold the office for more than a single six-year term and the longest serving president overall.

The grandson of Charles Burton Mitchel, Charles Burton Mitchel III was an Arkansas Senator who was selected as the Whig Vice-Presidential candidate in 1921. He and Wade Hampton V defeated the Freedom Party's Jake Featherston and the Radical Liberal Ainsworth Layne.

In June 1922, Hampton was assassinated at a rally in Birmingham. Mitchel assumed the presidency. With the election of Socialist President Upton Sinclair in the United States in 1920, Mitchel was able to negotiate an end to the reparation payments the CSA made to the USA.

In 1927, the Confederate Supreme Court ruled that Mitchel could run for the presidency in his own right, despite his having served almost all of Hampton's term. Mitchel won easily, but his second term was immediately marred by the stock market crash in 1929 and the subsequent Depression that engulfed the world. Mitchel proved incapable of responding to the Depression adequately. Indeed, the many shanty towns that sprung up across the Confederacy, filled with people who had lost everything, came to be known as "Mitcheltowns". The people of the C.S. turned away from the Whigs and to Featherston and the Freedom Party, electing him in 1933.

Mitchel finished his elected term in March 1934 in disgrace.
