Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Civil War in Louisiana begins with the first talk of secession in the state and ends with the last tragic days of the war. John D. Winters describes with great fervor and detail such events as the fall of Confederate New Orleans and the burning of Alexandria. In addition to military action, Winters discusses the political, economic, and social aspects of the war in Louisiana. His accounts of battles and the men who waged them provide a fuller story of Louisiana in the Civil War than has ever before been told.

About the Author

John D. Winters is Professor of History at Louisiana Polytechnic Institute in Ruston. His book is based on years of research that included not only exhaustive study of primary sources but also careful analysis of the most recent scholarship.

Generallya very good accounting of Louisiana's role in the Civil War. The book is of course somewhat dated having been written in 1963 for the centennial, and of course lacks some of the high end graphic illustrations one could expect of more modern depictions. The book is a more detailed description of events than most, and provides more information on actions like the siege of Port Hudson than is typically found. The book never the less is a gold mine of information on the generally forgotten war in the west and trans-mississippi.

Have always been interested in this part of the Civil War, it's not something covered much in war history. If you want to learn more about the Trans-Mississippi Theater you should read this book

A must read for any Civil War buff, especially those from Louisiana. The importance of Louisiana as the gate-keeper of the Mississippi makes an understanding of the conflict there paramount.

I love having this little pamphlet on hand. Very quick and easy for me to reference to confirm a date of an important event. Very good if you are studying the Civil War in Louisiana in school.

Lots of information here, some of it confusing. More illustrations of the terrain and descriptions of the bayous and tributaries of the Mississippi would be helpful. The role of Louisiana at the beginning of the Confederacy is described quite well and how that affected the Union being able to take control of New Orleans in 1862.
