Units from Louisiana (Union)

Units from Louisiana (Confederate)

Louisiana's troops were incorporated into the Confederate States army upon its creation, as Louisiana seceded before the Confederate States of America was established.

On August 21, 1861, the Confederate Congress passed an act authorizing the creation of Local Defense Troops, though the regulations for their organization (General Orders #86) were not issued by the Confederate States Adjutant and Inspector General's Office until June 23, 1863. These units were organized at the company or battalion level, and often consisted of government employees from various arsenals and bureaus, or detached troops from regular service on the front lines. Near the end of the war, these troops were grouped into regiments to serve in a militia-like capacity in the vicinity of their organizations.

The Confederate Congress also created the Reserves on February 17, 1864 when it expanded the draft to include all white males between 17 and 50 years of age. These Reserve units primarily consisted of men under 18 and over 45 and served only within the borders of the state of Louisiana.
