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 ~

NOTLEY C. DEVILLIERS, NOTLEYVILLE...Notley C. Devillers, a prominent citizen and representative of an old and distinguished family, was born near where he now resides, February 14, 1841. He is the son of Antoine C. and Melicaire (Bordelon) Devilliers, both of whom are natives of St. Landry parish. Antoine C. Devilliers died in 1863, at the age of fifty-five years; his wife survived him until 1868, and died at the age of fifty years.

The subject of our sketch spent his school days in St. Landry, and received a good classical education. In September, 1861, he enlisted at Opelousas, Louisiana, in Capt. L. H. Garland's company of the Eighteenth Louisiana Infantry, in which he served until May, 1865, as an orderly in the ranks, he was at the battles of Pittsburg Landing and Camp Bisland. At Natchitoches he was taken prisoner and retained a short time at New Orleans, where he was paroled. At the close of the war Mr. Devilliers saw the necessity of going to work, his estate having suffered heavily from the depredations of
the war. His father left him a patrimony of one hundred and fifty-six dollars, which he expended for live stock. By Mr. Devilliers' practical management, economy and enterprise, he has succeeded in accumulating a considerable amount of property. In 1881 he opened a store in the town of Notleyville, which was named in his honor. His plantation on Bayou Teche is one of the finest in this section. Mr. Devilliers was married, in 1865, to Miss Amyrithe Devilliers, and they are the parents of seven living children.
