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.)

~ Biography ~

JOSEPH ALCEE LEBLANC, ABBEVILLE ...Joseph Alcee LeBlanc, police juror from ward 1, was born in St. Mary parish, Louisiana, December 16, 1849. He is the son of John and Baptiste LeBlanc, both natives of this parish, where they were reared and married. They lived for some time after their marriage in St. Mary parish, but subsequently returned to Vermilion parish, where they have since resided. Mr. John LeBlanc has been a planter the whole of his life. He was a soldier in the late war, serving in Fournet's Battalion as sergeant of his company, and afterward was transferred to the Eighteenth Louisiana Infantry, and later was an officer in the Fourth Louisiana Cavalry.

The subject of this sketch spent his school days in St. Mary and Vermilion parishes, receiving a common school education. He has given his attention entirely to his planting interests since engaging in business and is one of the well-to-do planters of Vermilion parish. He was appointed member of the police jury in 1884, and in i888 was reappointed. Mr. LeBlanc married, in 1872, Miss Broussard, of Vermilion parish. To this union four sons and five daughters have been born, all of whom are living. Politically Mr. LeBlanc is an unwavering Democrat.
