This study of the American Civil War examines in detail the military operations that occurred in Louisiana - most of them minor skirmishes, but some of them battles and campaigns of major importance. The text begins with the first talk of secession in the state and ends with the last tragic days of the war. John Winters describes such events as the fall of Confederate New Orleans and the burning of Alexandria. In addition to military action, Winters discusses the political, economic and social aspects of the war.
