Civil War Louisiana (CWLA)

Civil War Louisiana (CWLA)
CWLA seeks to provide an online resource of any and all material of the Civil War relating to Louisiana with a special interest in the war in Acadiana in southwest Louisiana.


This page is a "work in progress." Rosters are, in my opinion, never finished. There is always some odd question/issue with a name, rank, etc.; names pop-up that were unknown; some sources have yet to be tapped into to compare to other rosters and so forth. Please keep in mind as 'complete' as rosters look they may not be. Several rosters that we'll put up will be incomplete and are a "work in progress." All help and assistance in providing rosters to researchers on Louisiana in the war is ALWAYS welcome!

Most rosters are NOT the work of 'Louisiana in the Civil War' but have been linked to other researchers. We will provide as many of the missing holes as much as possible.

  • Please note to all researchers visiting this page - several rosters are incomplete and are "works in progress."
