From Bergeron, LA Confed. Units, 85-87:

"This regiment, which was organized June 4, 1861, at Camp Moore with 916 men, went to Virginia. The regiment was guarding supplies and did not participate in the Battle of 1st Manassas, July 21. Several days later, the regiment was brigaded with the 7th, 8th, and 9th Louisiana regiments and the 1st Louisiana Special Battalion. After spending the winter near Centerville and Orange Court House, the brigade joined Stonewall Jackson’s army in the Shenandoah Valley in the spring of 1862. The regiment was in reserve at Front Royal on May 23 but skirmished with the enemy at Middletown the next day, capturing two enemy flags. At the Battle of Winchester, May 25, the regiment helped drive back the Federals. The regiment fought in the Battle of Port Republic, June 9; 66 of its men were killed or wounded. The men skirmished with the enemy at Hundley’s Corner on the night of June 26 and participated in the Battle of Gaines’ Mill on June 27. [Malvern Hill, July 1?] Marching with Jackson’s Corps into northern Virginia, the regiment fought at Bristoe Station, August 26; at Kettle Run, August 27; at 2nd Manassas, August 29-30; and at Chantilly, September 1. The men saw heavy fighting in the Battle of Sharpsburg, September 17; 52 were killed or wounded. In the Battle of Fredericksburg, December 13, the regiment was in reserve and suffered only a few casualties from enemy artillery fire. With the 5th Louisiana Infantry, the men disputed the Federal crossing of the Rappahannock River below Fredericksburg on April 29, 1863. On May 3, the regiment was driven from Marye’s Heights and had 27 men captured. The regiment participated in the Battle of Salem Church, May 4. On June 14, the regiment helped drive the enemy back from Winchester. The men assisted in the attack that routed the Federal [Eleventh] Corps at Gettysburg on July 1. The next afternoon they participated in an attack on Cemetery Hill; 53 of them were killed, wounded, or missing. Returning to Virginia, the regiment fought in the Bristoe Station Campaign, October 9-22. The Federals overran the brigade at Rappahannock Station on November 7 and captured 89 men of the regiment. In the spring of 1864 campaign, the remnants of the regiment fought at the Wilderness, May 5, and at Spotsylvania, May 9-19. On May 12, the brigade helped repulse the Federal attack at the Mule Shoe that had overrun the army’s other Louisiana brigade. The brigade accompanied General Jubal Early’s army to the Shenandoah Valley and participated in all of the battles fought there from June to October. By November, the regiment’s strength was so low that the regiment was consolidated into one company with the remnants of the 5th and 7th Louisiana regiments. The men joined the Army of Northern Virginia at Petersburg and saw action at Hatcher’s Run, February 6, 1865, and at Fort Stedman, March 25. When the army surrendered at Appomattox, on April 9, only 4 officers and 48 enlisted men remained on duty. Approximately 1,146 men served in the regiment during the war; 219 were killed in battle, 104 died of disease, 5 were killed in accidents, 1 drowned, and 1 was executed for desertion. At least 232 men deserted during the war."
