Battle Flag
of the
18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry

...Flag design is based on a small torn section of the regimental battle flag which is on display in the Confederate Museum, New Orleans, Louisiana. May 19, 1865. When the 18th Regiment was disbanded the flag was torn into ten pieces and a piece given to each of the ten company commanders. (Placement of Battle Inscriptions is specualtive and based on similar Confederate battle flags of the same period.)

J. V. DUHON, LAKE CHARLES...J. V. Duhon is a native of Calcasieu parish, Louisiana, born in 1844. He is the son of C. and A. Duhon, both natives of this State. His father was a planter and stock raiser. He was reared, married, and spent his whole life in Calcasieu parish.

The subject of this sketch grew to manhood in Calcasieu parish, and received his education in the schools of this place. In 1862 he entered the Confederate service and enlisted in Company A., Eighteenth Louisiana Regiment, in which he served until the close of the war. He was in the battle of Mansfield, besides numerous other hotly contested engagements. At the close of the war he returned home and engaged in farming. In 1869 he married Miss Eliza Benoit, a native of Louisiana, they having become the parents of twelve children, eight of whom are living. Mr. Duhon is one of the successful planters and stock raisers of this section; he owns from twelve to fifteen hundred acres of land&emdash;only a portion of which is under cultivation. He raises principally stock. He has recently become interested in a saw-mill in partnership with Mr. E. H. Burleson, whose sketch appears in this work. Mr. Duhon also carries a general stock of merchandise in connection with the mill in which he is interested. He is a prosperous business man.
