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.

Master Thesis Highlights Orleans Guards Battalion

While doing some research on Pond's Brigade at Shiloh I came across a Master Thesis written by Michael Pasquier. Pasquier's work is titled Catholics in Southern Culture. Starting on page 27 to 36 Pasquier chronicles the role of the Orleans Guards Battalion in the Shiloh and Corinth Campaigns. It covers the time span of March - June 1862. It is a great write up about this battalion.

  • I plan on posting more on the role of Pond's Brigade (including the Orleans Guards Battalion) at Shiloh in the future.
