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.

Louisianian Buried in Kentucky

Found an account of Private John A. Kile of Company C, 18th Louisiana. Kile was wounded at Shiloh, captured and north to Louisville Prison. Kile never made it to Louisville Prison. Instead, he died on the trip and his body was dropped off at Owensboro. An account of his burial was found at The Lost Cause: Journal of the Kentucky Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans. Please click on the link to read the nice write up about Kile.
