Intergrated Confederate Units

Louisiana, unlike other southern states, primarily maintained
separated white and black military organizations. A few
Louisiana "free blacks", however, served in white
Confederated units and received Confederate pensions.
Among them were Charles Lutz, Jean Baptiste Pierre-Auguste,
and Leufroy Pierre-Auguste of St. Landry Parish, who fought
with the Confederate army troops at Shiloh, Fredericksburg,
and Vicksburg.
