LOUISIANA IN THE CIVIL WAR

________________________________________
SCOPE & CONTENT

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.

Was hitting the internet and came across www.webshots.com where I found a LOT of images of Confederate soldiers.

Hope you enjoy the images below and be sure to visit the website for more great pics of soldiers from the war.
