Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Louisiana troops in the Army of Northern Virginia have been the subject of several books over the years. Service under Lee; the Eastern Theater bias of some historians; and the colorful nickname "Louisiana Tigers" for the eastern troops all contribute to this recognition. But there were also hard-fighting, deserving Louisiana soldiers in the Army of Tennessee and the Army of Mississippi as well. This book chronicles their service and gives them the attention they deserve. This book is very well researched. There are ample quotes from primary sources. There are biographical sketches as well as vivid battle and campaign story-telling. Numerous photographs bring the Louisiana soldiers to life, and battle maps zero in on the movements of specific Louisiana regiments in each of the battles chronicled. For geneologists as well as readers interested in the role of specific Louisiana units in the Western Theater of the War Between the States, this book saves the time that would be necessary to research numerous other volumes to find the information condensed in this one book. I found the book to be well-written, even entertaining. It fills a gap in the historical record and interestingly describes the same respect for the hard-fighting, well-led Louisiana troops among their Western army colleagues as existed for the Louisiana troops in the Army of Northern Virginia. It seems that wherever Louisiana troops served, they were respected for their fighting abilities above and beyond their enjoyment of good food, drink, and merriment.My only complaint about this book is the occasional, annoying appearance of typographical errors, e.g. Fort Pulaski when Fort Pickens is intended, or an Illinois regiment when an Indiana regiment is intended.Read more ›

This book is outstanding. Anyone wishing to know about Louisiana in the AOT has to get this book. I have never seen most of the information in this book about a forgotten chapter in the War of Rebellion. If you want to learn about the aspect of Louisiana Regiments in the West, you need to pick up this book. Great maps and pictures make this a must read.

Format: Paperback
The Adams/Gibson Louisiana Brigade has needed a history for a long time and Stuart Salling has done a very good job. Following the history of the unit from its member units creation he has wove a great military unit history. This one is a must for any serious student of the Army of Tennessee.
