I am looking for any information, including company muster rolls, for Edward's Battalion of Louisiana State Militia.
Major Nicholas S. Edwards commanded this outfit after having to leave the regular Confederate Army because of his age. According to information on the Internet, this unit was under the command of Col. James H. Wingfield during mid to late 1864.
Major Edwards is buried in Tangipahoa Parish, so I am hoping that this Battalion has some connection to Tangipahoa or St. Helena Parishes.
Any information will certainly be appreciated.
