Louisiana Civil War

Civil War Trail 

Louisiana's newest trail, which launched in spring 2009, focusses on the state's role in the American Civil War. Seceding from the Union in January 1861, Louisiana experienced invasions, battles and hardships until the war's end in 1865. Virtually no part of the state was left unaffected, from Shreveport in the north down to Port Sulphur in the south. See where battles were fought both on and off the field. 

A few trail locations: 

  • Louisiana State Exhibit, Shreveport
  • Grant's Canal, Lake Providence
  • Mansfield State Historic Site, Mansfield
  • Winter Quarters State Historic Park, Marthaville
