Louisiana Confederate Burials
This site contains burial information for Confederate soldiers from any state that are buried within the confines of Louisiana and also the sites of known Louisiana Confederate soldiers buried outside of Louisiana. This information has been gathered for years by a number of dedicated individuals.
We make no claim as to the certainty or validity of the information contained on this site. Due diligence was practiced in trying to determine many of the burials such as visual evidence, public records, etc. but there are known errors, many of them. In many instances you will see two or more burial sites listed for the same individual. That happened due to conflicting information and rather than exclude a possible site, all sites are included. Many of these were recorded many, many years ago and can no longer be positively verified. Please use this information with that caution in mind.
HOW TO USE THIS SITE
The site is easily accessed by clicking on the link to the Search Page and then clicking on the link to the letter of the alphabet that you are searching. The names are arranged alphabetically by surname and then first name or initials. The list is easily scrolled. On these pages you can see the name, dates of birth and death, if known, the state and county in which he is buried, his service information and also a code for the cemetery.
You will need this code to look up the cemetery on the "Cemetery" link. This list is arranged alphabetically by State and then by Cemetery Code. Scroll down to the code you are seeking and the known information about that cemetery is presented. In the case of Louisiana Cemeteries, most have been identified with GPS coordinates to aid in the finding of cemeteries.
There are also some codes occasionally at the far right end of a row labeled "Appendix" in which you will need to go to the corresponding link for possible additional information about burials at this cemetery or site.
This site is produced by and in conjunction with the Camp Moore Museum and Cemetery site and we encourage you to visit the website and also the facility in SE Louisiana.
This work is in honor and memory of the thousands of Confederate heroes that lie in unmarked graves or in graves marked "Unknown", that died in defense of their homeland for a Cause that they believed was right. They are unknown to all but God. There was no Confederate government at the end of the conflict to see that the Southern Dead were properly tended to. They were not allowed in the National Cemeteries. Thus, it fell upon the individual families and memorial associations that formed to see that their dead were properly remembered. Those whom we never cease to love, we never lose. Let it never be said that their Sons in these Southern States have forgotten their noble example.

"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.
Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own.
And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind.
