12 x 7 1/2, two sided imprinted form, filled out in ink.

The Crescent Consolidated Regiment of Louisiana. Lists four Louisiana soldiers from Company G, by name, date of enlistment, and clothing given to them during their enlistment, and its value. Also listed are the dates of distribution. Includes accounts of Peter McGrath, E.W. Knight, P.J. Verchon, and B.H. Breaut. McGrath was formerly a member of the 24th Louisiana. "This state militia regiment transferred to Confederate service in New Orleans on March 6, 1862, for ninety days with 945 men. The regiment went immediately to Corinth, Mississippi, to reinforce General P.G.T. Beauregard's army. On April 6, the regiment played an important role in the capture of two Union divisions at the Hornet's Nest during the battle of Shiloh. The next day, the men supported the 5th Company, Washington Artillery, and prevented the enemy from capturing three of the battery's guns. In the battle, 23 of the regiment's men were killed, 84 were wounded, and 20 were missing. Retreating with the army to Corinth, the regiment was disbanded on June 3rd by General Braxton Bragg at the expiration of their term of service. Most of the men then went into the 18th Louisiana Regiment. On September 17th, the Confederate War Department reorganized the regiment and ordered it to report to General Richard Taylor in south Louisiana. The reorganization occurred at New Iberia on October 16th, when Colonel McPheeters reclaimed the men serving with the 18th Louisiana. On October 27th, the regiment fought in the battle of Labadieville and retreated with the army to the lower Bayou Teche. After spending several weeks at Bisland, the men moved to Avery Island on December 19th. The regiment went to Butte a la Rose on January 11, 1863. On February 16th, Companies F, G, and H, while on picket on Grand River, fired on and drove off the enemy steamer Grey Cloud. The regiment returned to Bisland on April 7th and fought in the battle there on April 12th and 13th. Retreating with General Taylor's army through Opelousas and Alexandria to Natchitoches, the regiment returned to south Louisiana in June. The men garrisoned Brashear City in June and July while the army conducted operations on Bayou Lafourche. During the next three months, the regiment marched with General Alfred Mouton's brigade back and forth across south Louisiana. On November 3rd, the 11th and 12th [Confederate Guards] Louisiana Infantry battalions were added to the regiment at Simmsport to form the Consolidated Crescent Regiment." The regiment played a major role in the battle of Mansfield, on April 8th. In the attack on the enemy, more than 175 of the regiment's men were killed or wounded; and the regiment became the only Louisiana regiment to lose all 3 field officers in one battle. The next day, April 9th, at the battle of Pleasant Hill, the regiment saw limited fighting since its division constituted the army's reserve force. Pursuing General Nathaniel P. Banks' army back down the Red River, the regiment participated in the battle of Yellow Bayou, on May 18th. Portions, if not all, of the regiment supported the 2nd Louisiana Battery in a skirmish with enemy gunboats on the Atchafalaya north of Simmsport on June 8th. When the army marched through north Louisiana into southern Arkansas in the fall, the regiment remained at Alexandria and then marched to Shreveport. After several months in the garrison at Shreveport, the regiment returned to Alexandria. The brigade joined the regiment there in January 1865, and occupied camps in the vicinity until spring. In May, the brigade marched to Mansfield; it disbanded there on May 19th, prior to the surrender of the Trans-Mississippi Department."

The paper is very crisp and in excellent condition and is written in a very neat hand. Very nice war date Louisiana document. [Please note that the left and right edges of the document appear to be closely cropped. This is because the document is slightly larger than my scanner bed. The original document is full and none of the words are cut off as they appear here].
