The goal of Louisiana in the Civil War 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.

The Confederate Veteran is a great publication that ran from 1893-1932. They are all scanned and online at archive.org. Here is a master listing of all the volumes - GREAT RESOURCE for any researcher.

An example of what you can find in the Confederate Veteran. Here is a group photo of veterans of the 1st Louisiana Cavalry "Scott's" on May 21, 1903 in New Orleans. This is from CV 1903.
