Fighting Men of Louisiana Index

After WWII, a vanity print book was published, highlighting some of the soldiers who had served in that war from Louisiana. It was called “The Fighting Men of Louisiana”. It included a biography of the soldier along with a photo. Several different editions were published, each highlighting a section of the state. The Ouachita Parish Public Library’s Genealogy Department has one edition. In 2001, an employee of the Genealogy Department, Mr. Ronnie Harrison, Sr. set out to index the volume. He documented the names of 2,321 soldiers profiled in the book.
