- They just revamped their web page and its MUCH easier to navigate. The Civil War material is found in the Special Collections in a group called the LLMVC: Louisiana and Lower Mississippi Valley Collections.
- They have provided an Online Search Engine and it works! I typed in "13th Louisiana" and came across all the collections where the 13th Louisiana Infantry was mentioned.
- Even better than that is their online Photo Search Engine. They have scanned and provided online images of all their Civil War stuff!
- They also have microfilmed period newspapers from the Civil War.
LOUISIANA IN THE CIVIL WAR
The goal of Louisiana in the Civil War 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.____________________________________________
