Re: Militia vs. Confederate Service
"As for the state militia command formerly known as the Louisiana Native Guard, it's not on the list, having gone out of service on Feb 15, 1862. At that time the state legislature revised militia laws, disbanded all formations except those organized under the new law. The new law specifically limited service to "free white males...regardless of nationailty"."
The Yankees work overtime in trying to disassociate this unit from Confederates.
They will have to work even more in the future.
