The Pointe Coupee Artillery was organized in November, 1861. It was increased to a battalion with three companies at Abbeville, Mississippi ca. August 1862. Its members were originally recruited in Pointe Coupee, East and West Baton Rouge, Livington, Concordia and Orleans parishes. After Vicksburg, many of the paroled and exchanged prisoners ended up in the 6th Field Artillery Battery in late 1863. The battalion was consolidated into one company. It then joined the Army of Tennessee. With less than 25 men it surrendered on April 26, 1865. This edition contains a roster of the men of the brave Pointe Coupee Artillerymen. Where possible, photos and genealogical information has been added.
