Notes:
Duber (Dueber) was a driver for Company 3, of the Louisiana Washington Battalion Artillery. He was killed at the Battle of Sharpsburg or was taken prisoners and died at J. H. Grove's farm. (From state service records, provided by Greg Farino)

The Washington Artillery was first formed in 1838 in New Orleans and is the only unit that fought in the War between the States that is still in existence. It is also the oldest military organization in Louisiana. At the start of the War Between The States, the Battalion consisted of four companies. The men that filled the ranks were of the highest social standing and were 'members' of the Battalion: indeed it was considered a gentlemen's club with subscriptions being paid on a monthly basis even throughout the war. It was noted that the Battalion was "complete in all respects and at no cost to State or General Government" and on the 13th May 1861 made representation direct to the Confederate Government to enter the Confederate Army "for the War". They were immediately accepted and ordered to Virginia. Louisiana Battalion Washington Artillery
