Some Confederate Soldiers Buried in Louisiana


Some Louisiana Confederates Buried in Other States


The title of this work explains exactly what we are trying to accomplish - first, to record as many Confederate veterans from any state that are buried in Louisiana and to identify as many Louisiana Confederate Veterans as possible that are buried in other states. The reason that this effort is entitled "Some" is because we cannot hope to ever record all of the Confederate soldiers buried in Louisiana or Louisiana Confederate soldiers buried in other states. It is an ongoing project and as new information is recorded and filed, this database will be updated. It is available to all who wish to find ancestors or information regarding the resting places of these Confederate heroes.
