  • “It was the Tigers who blunted the initial Federal assault at First Manassas, played an important role in Jackson’s Valley campaign, held fast at Spotsylvania’s Bloody Angle, fought hand to hand at Fort Stedman, and led Lee’s last offensive at Appomattox. This is an excellent work, thoroughly researched, and well written. Lee’s Tigers is the first comprehensive study of all the Louisiana units operating under General Lee.” – Civil War History

    This was a common game for children of the 1860’s.The object of the game is to knock as many marbles as you can out of a designated area. Begin by drawing a circle (approximately 3 feet in diameter) in the dirt or with chalk on a hard flat surface. Next throw the 10 small marbles into the circle. Cradle the large marble in your index finger and tuck your thumb behind the marble. Keeping your finger outside the circle lay your hand on the ground and flick the marble out of your hand with your thumb. When a marble is knocked out of the circle it is won by the shooter. The shooter with the most marbles wins. /!\ WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD-This toy is a small ball. Not for children under 3 yrs.

  • Chivalrous, arrogant, and of exotic Creole Louisiana origin, Beauregard participated in every phase of the Civil War from its beginning to its end. He rigidly adhered to the principles of war derived from his studies of Jomini and Napoleon, and yet many of his battle plans were rejected by his superiors, who regarded him as excitable, unreliable, and contentious. After the war, Beauregard was almost the only prominent Confederate general who adapted successfully to the New South, running railroads and later supervising the notorious Louisiana lottery.

  • Located just north of Baton Rouge, the village was the last Confederate stronghold on the Mississippi River and the site of the longest genuine siege in American military history. In Port Hudson, Confederate Bastion on the Mississippi, Lawrence Hewitt offers a compelling account of the Confederate occupation of Port Hudson in August, 1862, and the Union’s efforts to capture the stronghold, culminating in a final unsuccessful assault in May, 1863. Throughout his study, Hewitt offers a colorful narrative account of daily life in the garrison, the commanders’ strategies, and the importance of Port Hudson to the war.
