From the militia of colonial days to the National Guard of modern times, Americas citizen soldiers have symbolized the preparedness, the unselfish service, and the devotion to duty that have sustained the nation in war and peace. In times of grave national crisis, including wars, civil disorders, and natural disasters, these often unheralded patriots have served willingly, faithfully, and well. And, having contributed their special abilities to the task at hand, they returned to their citizen roles to await the next summons to duty. Here, for the first time, is the complete, detailed, documented history of the Louisiana National Guard, a facet of the states rich and colorful history that has never before been treated in depth. Author Evans J. Casso has woven an intricate tapestry of this continuing chronicle, drawing heavily upon extensive research from official state papers, archives, journals, narrative reports, and numerous personal interviews. With a disciplined historians eye, he traces the evolution of the Guard, from its forerunners of the frontier days to the highly trained, well-equipped organization of modern times. This work places in perspective the growth of the National Guard and the vital role it has played in the development of the Louisiana Territory, and later of both the state and the nation.
