Louisiana presented a unique problem among the Confederate states.

The capture of New Orleans by Union forces in 1862 severed the great port and its environs from the interior and aggravated social and economic problems already made acute by a year of war.

In this classic, comprehensive study, Jefferson Davis Bragg examines the economic, political, and military history of Confederate Louisiana, which has frequently been overlooked due to New Orleans' early fall.
