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.

LSU Special Collections

Being from Louisiana and researching Louisiana in the Civil War means I have come across and dealt with Louisiana State University's (LSU) Special Collections at Hill Memorial Library. This organization is great to work with! I have worked with them off-and-on for a few years but especially in 2009 trying to wrap things up for Louisianians in the Western Confederacy. They are great and I felt that I'd put a blurb about some of their resources.
