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.

I found this article online posted by the Fort Sam Houston Museum. I think its a great piece on a Louisianian by the name of Captain William Wallace Walker. I will let you read the piece on him-veteran of the Civil War and Spanish-American War! When you click on the article you will notice a photograph of a group officers. These were members of the "Tensas Cavalry" and were officers of the 3rd Louisiana Cavalry. The officer sitting at the bottom left was the eventual Colonel of the 3rd Louisiana Cavalry, Isaac F. Harrison. Its a great photo!
