St. Tammany's Confederates

St. Tammany's Confederates: Civil War Soldiers With Ties To St Tammany Parish, Louisiana. 150th Anniversary Of The Civil War In Louisiana


St. Tammany answered the call during the Civil War. Over 400 men came from all areas of St. Tammany, with the most coming from the Covington area. Some bore surname which are still familiar in the area today such as Goodbee, Mandeville and Slidell. Their given names often represented their families patriotic pride in the United States such as George Washington Mason, and Martin Van Buren Huges of St Tammany. There were several who were apparently from Methodist families, being named after James Wesley. These young men, a mix of Creoles and Americans, came from a variety of backgrounds. Some were from wealthy plantains on the North Shore Others came from small farming families. Others had migrated from Ireland or France and were barely settled in a new land when they got caught up in the cause.Several military companies were formed in the parish. One which was known for its action at Port Hudson was Miles Legion, commanded by Colonel William R. Miles. Other companies which came out of the parish were the St. Tammany Grays, commanded by Captain C. Crosby; the St. Tammany Artillery, under Captain J. A. Turner; and the Mandeville Rifles, commanded by Captain Charles Morgan. Another company which included St. Tammany Parish men was Hardy H. Richardson's company, which was organized by Captain Richardson in Washington Parish in June 1861.At the beginning of the war the St. Tammany Regiment of the Louisiana Militia was formed as a local guard. Another company stationed in Covington was Captain M. G. Mullins' Company of Scouts and Sharpshooters. With the men off at war, their families were left without support, and the Police jury had to assume that burden. An appropriation of $20,000 for the purpose of furnishing this support was made in early 1862, which subjected the parish treasury to unaccustomed strain.Parish script was printed by the police jury for payment to the families.One section features Civil War Faces of St. Tammany.
