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 was sitting at my computer Friday afternoon (actually working on a map) when my silent work was interrupted by loud yells from my daughters, "Daddy! Daddy! Your books are here!". Yes, I have received my bundle of books for Louisianians in the Western Confederacy! It appears they have not quite hit Amazon.com (link to the left of the page) and other sites just yet. Here is a link directly to the publisher's page if interested. VERY exciting moment and looking forward to more in the future.

Currently, there are penciled in speaking engagements at Memorial Hall in New Orleans in the Summer; Camp Moore Museum on possibly a weekend and their reenactment in September; Barnes n Nobles in Lafayette and in the fall possibly at the Shreveport Civil War Round Table. I will post definite speaking engagements for anyone interested.
