Item description for Confederate Military History of Louisiana: Louisiana in the Civil War, 1861-1865 by Dimitry John...
On January 26, 1861, Louisiana became the sixth state to secede from the Union and join the Confederate States of America. Upon secession, the citizens of the Pelican State began the organization of troops to defend Louisiana and the newly created Confederacy. Soldiers were sent to all corners of the Confederacy-from Florida to Virginia to Tennessee to Arkansas-serving proudly and nobly for their state. Others stayed home and ably defended Louisiana against Union invasion and occupation.

Butler's occupation, William B.
