The goal of Civil War Louisiana is to provide an online resource of information and links to our great state's involvement in the war. Topics expected to be commonly covered are: Battles fought in Louisiana, battles that Louisianians participated in, unit histories, rosters, uniforms and equipment of Louisiana soldiers, personalities to include not only the leadership of the state and armies but the common soldier, flags and resources to research/read on the state's role in the war.

Louisiana in the Civil War strongly supports the input of the Civil War community. Submissions of stories, information, etc. are welcome and full credit will be given for what we share.

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.
