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.

15th Arkansas at Port Hudson Website

Gary Hardy has put together a great site titled, The Battle of Port Hudson, which focuses on the 15th Arkansas at Fort Desperate. Hardy is the descendant of John R. Hardy Company A, 15th Arkansas-who fought at Port Hudson and was wounded while defending Fort Desperate. Included on the website is a letter from Hardy written on March 8, 1863 from Port Hudson. Very interesting site with some very useful information.
