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.

Rosters Page

If you look to your left you will see that we are slowly trying to build certain categories where we can establish a list of information on period newspapers, flags and rosters for units. Its slow but there is progress. Recently, we have been able to upload several rosters on the Rosters Page. Most rosters are a "work in progress" and there will always be names to add and adjust.

So far we have: 17 full infantry unit rosters and partials for 2 more; 7 different artillery units (some single batteries and some full battalions) and 2 cavalry regiment rosters. Expect 5-6 more infantry unit rosters in the not too distant future. You will notice several of the rosters are linked to a unit website and we want them to get full credit for their hard work. Some are credited to an author's work while others are from old publications OR from the hard work of individuals who want to share what they have discovered with their unit(s).
