Art Bergeron


Historian Art Bergeron passed away early this month. I wanted to take the time to acknowledge the loss of a major contributor to Louisiana and its role in the Civil War. He proved to be a pioneer with Louisiana Confederate military history. Mr. Bergeron proved to be a patient and gracious man. I came into contact with him around 1995-96 time span when I was conducting research as an undergraduate student at McNeese State University. Since that time, Mr. Bergeron assisted me on various issues up to just a few months ago. I wanted to take the time to acknowledge the accomplishments of Mr. Bergeron and encourage all to read a tribute posted to Mr. Bergeron on the Civil War Message Board. A quick Google search will show that Mr. Bergeron touched and reached a lot of people in the Civil War community through his work.

  1. Thanks for the link to the tribute, Stuart! And, by the way, kudos on the fine job you're doing on your blog.

  2. You are very kind, thank you Jane. Looked for a revamped site before too long.
