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.

Confederate Snow Ball Fight at Dalton

This article really doesn't mention Louisiana soldiers specifically but it is a great write up about a massive snow ball battle at Dalton, Ga. in January of 1864. The Army of Tennessee was recuperating from its disaster at Missionary Ridge in late November. Reflecting the psychological recovery of the Army of Tennessee were the frequent snow ball fights the men engaged in. This is from the New Orleans Times-Picayune, June 8, 1902. Enjoy!!!
