From a reader:
In looking at the information you have entered in the site Louisiana Genealogy - LA AHGP, I note that the information you have been given is erroneous. The information you have was developed by Joseph H. Crute, Jr. (Units of the Confederate States Army). Mr. Crute's book has numerous factual errors, several of which are perpetrated in other general sources due to the use of the incorrect information in his book. First, James Blair was a brave soldier and rose to Lt. Col. of the 2nd LC before resigning, but was never Colonel. William Germain Vincent was Colonel of the 2nd LA Cavalry for its entire history. Second, the regiment was represented by men from many Louisiana Parishes, but the Crute statement that it was mostly men from South LA is incorrect. Six (6) of the 10 war from Northwestern and central LA - five (5) from the Natchitoches area and one (1) from Rapides Parish. The other four (4) companies were definitely from South Louisiana. I would hope that this misleading and inaccurate information published by Mr. Crute, and used on the "Louisiana Genealogy - LA AHGP" site can be corrected. Very best Don Parker
