From Bergeron, La. Confed. Units, 128-30:

"This regiment was organized in New Orleans, possibly at Camp Lewis, in January 1862, by the addition of six companies to the Orleans Artillery Battalion, a state militia unit.  In March, the regiment was mustered into Confederate service with approximately 841 men.  The various companies occupied at that time or soon received assignment to different fortifications along the Gulf Coast.  Companies A, B, C, and D defended Fort Livingston; Companies E and G, Fort Guion on Bayou Lafourche; Companies F and K, Fort Pike; Company H, Fort Quitman on Grand Caillou Bayou; and Company I, Fort Jackson.  The latter company was captured at Fort Jackson on April 26.  When General Mansfield Lovell ordered the evacuation of New Orleans, most of the companies disbanded, and the men went home, fearing orders compelling them to leave the state.  Companies E, F, and K, with small numbers of men from other companies, reported to Lovell at Camp Moore.  On May 25, these men reorganized themselves into four companies.  They received orders to report to Vicksburg, Mississippi, and arrived there on June 11.  The men took part in the defense of the city by manning some of the heavy artillery in the river batteries until the enemy abandoned its operations on July 27.  During the fall and winter, the regiment continued to serve in the Vicksburg river batteries and received reinforcements in the form of men of the unit who were exchanged after having been captured at New Orleans.  Sometime in early 1863, the regiment's designation was changed to the 22nd Louisiana Regiment.  In March, 1863, the men went to Fort Pemberton near Yazoo City, where they exchanged shots with Federal gunboats on several occasions.  When General Ulysses S. Grant's Union army approached Vicksburg in May, the regiment returned to the city to participate in its defense.  Companies A and B served with the 1st Louisiana Heavy Artillery in the river batteries, and Companies C and D fought in the trenches with the 21st (old 22nd) Louisiana Regiment.  These four companies were surrendered with the garrison on July 4 and paroled.  Captain Durrive's company [F] had remained at Yazoo City because it had been acting independently from the other companies.  In early July, this company moved to Jackson, and the men participated in the fighting there until the city was evacuated, on July 16.  The company remained in central Mississippi until winter, when it went to Mobile, Alabama.  Most of the men captured at Vicksburg went into a parole camp at Enterprise.  On January 26, 1864, they were united with the remnants of the 21st Louisiana Regiment and with the men from several other Louisiana regiments to form the 22nd Louisiana Consolidated Regiment."
