“Bergeron has produced a book. . . essential to the serious Confederate scholar.”—Journal of American History

In Guide to Louisiana Confederate Military Units, Arthur W. Bergeron, Jr., examines the 111 artillery, cavalry, and infantry units that Louisiana furnished to the Confederate armies. No other reference has the complete and accurate record of Louisiana’s contribution to the war. For each unit, Bergeron provides a brief account of its war activities—including battles, losses, and dates of important events. He also lists the units’ field officers, the companies in each regiment or battalion, and the names of company commanders.

“This book should serve as a model for studies of other states in the Civil War.”—Military History of the Southwest 

Arthur W. Bergeron, Jr., is historian at Pamplin Historical Park near Petersburg, Virginia; author of Guide to Louisiana Confederate Military Units, 1861-1865 and Tudor Hall: The Boisseau Family Farm; and editor of The Civil War Reminiscences of Major Silas T. Grisamore, C.S.A.
