...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.)

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.
