    • Notes from Mark Howell:

      CSA Military Service - 1st Lieutenant - Aug 27, 1861; Elected Captain May 6, 1862; Wounded at Atlanta, Georgia, July 22, 1864

      "The History of Bradwell Institute - Bradwell Institute was founded in 1871 by Captain Samuel Dowse Bradwell, C.S.A, and others, succeeding the Hinesville Institute, which had closed during the War Between the States. The school was named for Colonel James Sharpe Bradwell, father of Captain Bradwell. For many years, Bradwell Institute was a private school where students paid tuition and boarded in private homes. Today, Bradwell Institute is a public comprehensive high school with a curriculum that is geared to the interests and needs of students of different ability levels and educational backgrounds. Bradwell also offers a variety of student activities to match the varied interests of the student body. Our school is continually upgrading facilities and equipment in order to keep up with the changes occurring in education and business today." [2]
