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.

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."
