(1818-80) Born in Iberville Parish, Louisiana, he had a brilliant scholastic career graduating #1 in his class at Jefferson College in 1836, and he held the same distinction at the U.S. Military Academy four years later where two of his classmates were future Union Generals William T. Sherman and George H. Thomas. He fought in the Mexican War with great distinction earning the brevet rank of colonel for his gallantry in the battle of Molino del Rey. He was elected governor of Louisiana in 1852, and was said to have been the youngest governor ever elected in Louisiana. A Democrat, he supported railroad construction, public education, and the improvement of navigable waterways. Hebert helped get his former West Point classmate William T. Sherman appointed superintendent of the Louisiana Seminary of Learning and Military Academy. During the 1860 secession crisis, Hebert was appointed to the military board responsible for preparing Louisiana's defenses if war broke out. At the commencement of hostilities in 1861, he was appointed colonel of the 1st Louisiana Artillery, but soon afterwards was promoted to brigadier general of Louisiana State Troops. Then on August 17, 1861, he was commissioned brigadier general and given command successively of the Department of Texas, the Galveston defenses, and the Sub-district of North Louisiana. He supposedly saw action at the battle of Milliken's Bend, La., on June 7, 1863, but some historians disagree that he was actually engaged. In August 1864, Hebert replaced General John B. Magruder as commander of the District of Texas, and in 1865 he was given command of the Trans-Mississippi Department. He surrendered to General Gordon Granger on May 26, 1865. After the surrender Hebert returned to his plantation in Louisiana, took the oath of allegiance, and through an endorsement by his old West Point friend William T. Sherman received a presidential pardon from Andrew Johnson. He became a Liberal Republican during Reconstruction which angered many of his fellow Louisianans, and he supported the carpetbagger governor Henry Clay Warmouth. Later President Ulysses S. Grant appointed him to various engineering boards, and Hebert worked as a state and federal engineer in postwar Louisiana.

Antique silver print photograph in uniform wearing a hat with artillery insignia and plume. This pose is the only known image of Hebert in uniform and is thought to have been taken early in the war while he served as colonel of the 1st Louisiana Artillery. No imprint. 2 3/8 x 3 1/2. Circa early 1900's. Hebert is very scarce to find in an original war date image.
