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.
