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.)

HENRY J. MOSS, ABBEVILLE...Henry J. Moss is a native of Louisiana, born in what is now Vermilion parish, 1835. He is one of a family of seven children born to Alfred and Joanna (Hartley) Moss. Alfred Moss was born in Georgia, removing to Louisiana with his parents when a boy, and here received his education. He was a soldier in the Mexican War. During the whole of his life he gave his attention to agricultural pursuits. He died in Vermilion parish in 1845, his widow surviving him until 1853.

The subject of this sketch was educated in the schools of the locality in which he was reared, and on beginning business life engaged in farming, to which he has devoted himself during the whole of his life. He served as a soldier in the Civil War, having enlisted in the infantry service. He only served a short while, when he was wounded and was disabled for active service and received his discharge. Mr. Moss owns six hundred acres of land in Vermilion parish, three hundred of which he cultivates, principally in corn, rice and cane. In 1858 he married Miss Jane Primeaux, of Vermilion parish. They are the parents of sixteen children, fifteen of whom are living, viz: Maticia, Anna, Clarence, Franklin, Henrietta, Laura, Carrie M., Hartley, Oliver, Howard, Cornelius, Clifton, Lily, Lilian and Walter.
