Pointe Coupee provided hundreds of its men to the Confederate Army. As the talk of war began in 1861, several units of soldiers formed in Pointe Coupee. Some stayed in the area as local militia. Others left to join regiments of the Confederate Army. The goal of this booklet was to put an image to a name in an effort to give more identity to the war in Pointe Coupee. Regretfully most will remain faceless. The local men tended to be from one of the locally organized units. Among the companies formed in made up largely of soldiers from or identified with Pointe Coupee were: Fausse River Guards Grosse Tete Flying Artillery 6th Field Battery Morgan's Cavalry Nixon Rifles Pointe Coupee Artillery Battalion Pointe Coupee Creoles Pointe Coupee Light Infantry Pointe Coupee Regiment Pointe Coupee Volontiers Porche's Cavalry Portraits of Civil War Faces of Pointe Coupee ADAMS, Jefferson, Jacoby, LA AVEGNO, Anatole Placide, 13th Louisiana Infantry BADGER, Algernon, Yankee Colonel injured in Pt.
