If anybody is interested, I've just created a Yahoo Group discussion group/message board for anyone with a historical or genealogical interest in the 3rd Regiment, Louisiana Infantry during the American Civil War. It is a friendly, informal group where you can post queries, share research, tell family stories, share photos, and meet others who are researching or have ancestors in this regiment. It is free to subscribe and membership is moderator-approved to discourage spammers. Check it out at:
My ancestor was Benjamin Franklin Allein who lived in Madison Parish, Louisiana and who was in the 3rd Regiment, Louisiana Infantry, Company H.
