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.

Confederate Memorial Hall, June 26, 2010

Made my first public speaking about the Adams-Gibson Louisiana Brigade on June 26th in New Orleans at Confederate Memorial Hall. Really enjoyed visiting with the staff, being able to take my time and look around (which I haven't been able to do in years). Attempting to cover the entire book and all of its various battles, topics, etc. I kept the focus of the topic on how the book came about; the politics of command between Randall Gibson, Daniel Adams and Braxton Bragg; and attempted to go into some depth on the 20 images that Memorial Hall allowed me to use in Louisianians in the Western Confederacy. Complimenting several of the images being discussed was their display in the cases adjacent to the audience. The night went very well and my thanks to Memorial Hall for having me as their guest.
