Works by Art Bergeron

Whenever doing research on Louisiana in the Civil War there is one name that will ALWAYS appear: Art Bergeron. Art is well known in the Civil War community, greatly missed and greatly appreciated, especially by Louisianians. Thanks to Mr. Lawrence Hewitt, I am able to list books, articles, essays, etc. that Art published. You will notice a large percentage of his work focused on Louisiana/Louisianians in the Civil War.
