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.

CWRT of Acadiana

I have the honor of being the guest speaker for the Civil War Round Table of Acadiana this Tuesday night (September 21st). The meeting will be at Ramada Inn in New Iberia (located on Hwy. 14 at Hwy 90 intersection). A sign in and brief social begins at 6:30 and a buffet will be served at 7:0o PM ($20.00 per guest).


  1. Had a great time tonight and got to see some old friends again. Thanks to Mr. Al, Mr. Paul and Jimmy. I really enjoyed myself tonight.

  2. Wish I could have been there. I have an interest in the Battle of Calcasieu Pass because my ancestor was a part of it.
