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.

Flags of the Confederacy Website

I noticed on Lee White's Army of Tennessee Blog that Flags of the Confederacy is back in operation. Very nice resource to read up on types of flags used and there are plenty of visual aids. One of the editorial staff is Mr. Greg Biggs. He was one of the gentleman who assisted me with several map questions when working on Louisianians in the Western Confederacy. He provided extensive documentation for all questions I had-very impressive. There is even a Trans-Mississippi section for flags.
