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.)

...At this point in time, we are still searching for an image of Q. M. Sergt. William Hall and we hope to add one in the forseeable future. Should any of his decendants have a photo of William, and would gratiously care to place a copy of his photo at this web site...this researcher would be grateful.
