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 ~

ADLIN DURLO, ARNAUDVILLE...Adlin Durlo is a native of St. Martin parish, born November 12, 1838. His parents, Alexander Durio and Adline (Chautin) Durio, were natives of St. Landry and St. Martin parishes respectively. Alexandria Durio was a successful planter of St. Martin parish, was prominent in local affairs and served as justice of the peace and member of the police ury for a number of years. He died in 1856, at the age of fifty-four years. Mrs. Durio died in 1855, at the age of thirty-five. There were born to them six children, of whom the subject of this sketch was the second.

Adlin Durio spent his school days in St. Martin and St. Landry parishes, and received a good practical education. Upon his father's death he gave his attention to planting, making a specialty of cotton and corn. In January of 1862 he enlisted in the Confederate service, and served as Lieutenant in Company G, Yellow Jacket Battalion, which, two years later, was consolidated with the Eighteenth Louisiana Infantry. His regiment disbanded in Alexandria at the close of the war. Mr. Durio was in many active engagements, among which were Pleasant Hill, Norwood Plantation and Mansfield. At the last named battle he received a gun shot wound in the right limb, from which he was disabled for some time.

At the close of the war his capital consisted of a Confederate uniform and three hundred dollars in old debts. In 1866 he commenced planting on Bayou Teche, in St. Martin's parish. The first year his crop was destroyed and he was compelled to sell his plantation. In 1868 he commenced a mercantile business with a small stock of goods. In this he was more successful, and his efforts since that time have been attended with abundant success. His business amounts annually to more than $20,000. Some years after opening his mercantile business he bought a plantation in St. Landry parish, to which he has since added until he now owns twenty-five hundred acres of land on Bayou Teche. In 1888 he was elected mayor of the the town of Arnaudville. He has never aspired to political honor, but has always taken a prominent part in political workings. He was united in marriage, in 1866, with Miss Anis Guilbeau, of St. Martin's parish. She died in1881, having become the mother of seven children, viz: Dr. A. C. of this place; Clara, Emma, Ida, Marie, Lucie Regenald, Lucy. In 1882 Mr. Durio was married a second time, to Miss Lizzie L. Gilbeau, and to them have been born four children Aldin, Jr., Carrie, Anis and Henry. Mr. Durio and family are members of the St. Joseph Catholic church of this place.
