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.

Lazy Jacks Mess has done a great job in sharing a large amount of information on period uniforms. There is one particular piece that I found of interest and applies to the war in the Trans-Mississippi Department: Trans-Mississippi Confederate Uniforms. VERY informative and interesting article. Here are the three pieces:

Trans-Mississippi Confederate Uniforms Pt. 1
Trans-Mississippi Confederate Uniforms Pt. 2
Trans-Mississippi Confederate Uniforms Pt. 3

I strongly suggest checking out several of their articles.


  1. Thank you for this interesting post and great blog; I will be able to spend many happy hours investigating all your links!

  2. Hope to see you often! Welcome and thank you.
