As a continuing service to the men who served with the 18th Louisiana Infantry Regiment, this web site is presenting hours of searching through the list of men who applied for Confederate Pension Benefits and/or their Widows who applied for Widow's.

Pension Application Records
for Louisiana Confederate Soldiers and/or Their Widows

Copies of the actual documents that made up the application are on file at the Louisiana State Archives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Copies of the documents can be obtained by going to the Archives in person, or by requesting them by mail. Considering the material that a descendant can accumulate when a request is made, the cost is very nominal.

The documents can contain much in the way of valuable research information including the unit that the veteran served with, the names of some of his fellow soldiers, copies of marriage certificates (civil and/or church), letters of recommendation from a commanding officer, statements from fellow soldiers, death certificates, and the list goes on. Some

Confederate Pension Applications only carry a minimal of information while others carry a wealth of information -- all valuable to the researcher who is searching for his ancestors past paper trails.

A typical Application for Confederate Pension Benefits can cost as little as $10!!!! A small fee, indeed for what could be a treasure trove of information.

We are listing the names, and the units of the men that we have either confirmed to date or that meet the criteria as a strong probability of being the soldier in question. We do not guarantee that all names listed below are 100% accurate -- but the vast majority of them are. The bonus of our search has yielded the names (including in many cases, the MAIDEN NAME) of the widow of the soldier listed.
