Military Record of Louisiana
“A New Orleans soldier’s personal account of the best and the worst of war.”—Maine Sunday Telegram
This edition of Napier Bartlett’s 1875 memoir makes again available a valuable resource on Louisiana troops’ participation in the Civil War. Bartlett served throughout the war in Louisiana’s elite Washington Artillery and fought in many battles in Virginia and the East. He later wrote an engaging account of his experiences, A Soldier’s Story of the War, which constitutes a substantial portion of this book. The balance of the volume provides much detailed information and official data concerning Louisiana units in the Confederate Army, including muster rolls, lists of casualties and the cemeteries where they were buried, and company journals.
