Civil War Louisiana (CWLA)

Civil War Louisiana (CWLA)
CWLA seeks to provide an online resource of any and all material of the Civil War relating to Louisiana with a special interest in the war in Acadiana in southwest Louisiana.

Wayne Cosby of Camp Moore Museum in Tangiphoa, La. has been been the cornerstone of organizing and collecting an impressive amount of work on the burial sites of Louisiana soldiers. At the Camp Moore web site he's provided an online database of his work. It includes the names of 16,000 men and over 2,600 cemeteries. There is a link on this page that brings you to a "Cemetery List." The cemeteries are coded and you will need this list to see which cemetery a Louisiana veteran is buried.

  • I encourage researchers to check this excellent resource out.
