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.

Unknown Louisiana Zouave

Image located at Saving the South Relics

Found this image at Saving the South Relics. It is an image of an unknown Louisianian. I've copied and pasted their write up on the image below:

1/6th Plate Ambrotype of a Confederate Chasseur/ Zouve from Louisiana. Image is bright and distinct. Subject wears Gray Kepi and Zouve style jacket with prominent piping on sleeves, collar and seams. Below the mat one can see the typical baggy Zouve trousers one would expect with such a soldier. The image originated in Louisiana and is possibly from one of the several New Orleans units dressed in such attire in the early months of the war. Image comes in full case.
