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.

Footnote.com (link provided to go directly to look up Confederate soldiers) is an absolute GREAT site for researching soldiers in the war. Trying to find something on your ancestor or perhaps you are attempting to build rosters for companies/regiments? This is THE place for you. The 1860 Census is also listed here. These are all the records out of the National Archives, scanned and at your finger tips. Here's a screenshot of one to give you some eye candy.
