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 ~

URSIN PREJEAN, M. D., CARENCRO...Ursin Prejean, M.D., was born in St. Landry parish, Louisiana, September 27, 1855. He is the son of Ursin T. Prejean, a native of St. Landry parish. Ursin T. was a successful planter in St. Landry parish. He served during the Civil War in the Eighteenth Louisiana Infantry, Confederate army, and was in many of the active campaigns. He died at the age of fifty-five years.

The subject of this sketch is the oldest of a family of seven children. He received his education in the common schools, and at St. Charles College, Grand Coteau. At the age of twenty years he began the study of medicine under the direction of Dr. Moss, of St. Landry parish. In 1874 he matriculated in the medical department of the now Tulane University, graduating in 1877. He then began practice in St. Landry parish, where he was located until 1880, when he removed to Carencro, and has since here resided. His practice is large and extends over a considerable area of Lafayette and St. Landry parishes. The Doctor has been, though he is not at present, a member of the Attakapas Medical Association. He was married, in 1877, to Miss Breaux, of Lafayette parish. Mrs. Prejean died, and the Doctor afterward married Miss Maria Matthieu.
