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.

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.
