  • Union Regiment Question

    Does anyone know which one regiment was present during New Orleans, Mine Run, and Fort Fisher?
    My worst jump story:
    My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
    As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
    No lie.

    The only one I can think of would be the siege train and I think that's the 1st Connecticut heavy arty....?

      I don't think any of the Black Louisiana Regiments served outside Louisiana. During "The Battle of New Orleans" the Free Black Militia were not armed and went home and disbanded. Some later volunteered for Federal service. If you are referring to the War of 1812, two units of Free Back Militia served at Chalmette. They may have been only Company sized. They were lauded as having the best looking uniforms!

        Thanks, but not at New Orleans.

            Actually there was no "Battle of New Orleans" in the ACW. The Federal Fleet got past the forts guarding entrance of the Mississippi and showed up at New Orleans. There was frantic activity to get all the unarmed Confederate units out. The Militia in New Orleans never turned out. The Civil authorities surrendered New Orleans. I think General Lovell "evacuated" with the troops.

              The unknown regiment claims it, or was just there.

                There was no Union Louisiana Regiments until after Butler raised them. There is no basis for that claim. Why don't you reveal this splendid unit?

                  Not sure who they were, that was why I asked.

                    Perhaps if you could give us a clue as to what exactly you are talking about? Did you see a citation in a book? In a magazine article? A direct quote might help us figure it out.
                    The muffled drums sad roll has beat the soldier's last tatoo. No more on life's parade shall meet that brave and fallen few.

                      It will have to have been one of those regiments.

                      I don't believe any were at New Orleans but I couldn't find an order of battle for New Orleans.

                          The only thing I am certain of is that the regiment was Infantry and they were at the three locations mentioned.
                          My worst jump story:
                          My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
                          As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
                          No lie.

                            If you really want an answer, you will have to give us more information. The Union Navy captured New Orleans and the two river Forts (Phillip and Jackson) also surrendered to the USN. One of the reasons Butler raised the Corps d'Afrique was to garrison forts so he could use his New England Troops against Confederate Army troops. I think this unit "History" indicates one of the many units of US Colored Troops that were raised in Louisiana. The Corps d'Afrique garrisoned both of these forts, New Orleans, Cat Island and Ship Island. The Corps d'Afrique regiments were later rolled into the USCT and re-numbered. I can't find a Corps d'Afrique or USCT unit that served in Louisiana and then went to Fort Fisher, let alone Mine Run. Most of the units in Bank's Corps that went up the Red River participated in taking Mobile.

                            If you want further help you will have to supply if you came across this unit in a book or magazine article.

I can't find a Corps d'Afrique or USCT unit that served in Louisiana and then went to Fort Fisher, let alone Mine Run. Most of the units in Bank's Corps that went up the Red River participated in taking Mobile.

                              If you want further help you will have to supply if you came across this unit in a book or magazine article.

                              That is all I have. Was hoping that some sharp whippersnapper knew the answer.
                              My worst jump story:
                              My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
                              As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
                              No lie.
