12th &13th Consolidated Louisiana Regiment

The Florida Parishes had actually been part of Spanish Florida until 1810, when they declared independence and for a few weeks proclaimed themselves the "Republic of West Florida".

1810 Governor Claiborne had marched his troops into the Florida Republic to claim it for Louisiana, but the people there were deeply divided as to whether they wanted to join Louisiana, the Mississippi territory, or remain independent. Claiborne resolved the question by military fiat. So when he tried to call up the troops four years later, one could imagine that not everyone trusted him.

In 1813 Governor Claiborne, anticipating an attack by the British, issued an order to summon militia. The men of the 10th,11th,12th, & 13th regiments of the 3rd Brigade (from what we now call the Florida Parishes, i.e. those above Lake Ponchartrain and east of Baton Rouge) were to report at Baton Rouge not later than Jan 20, 1814. (A year before the Battle of New Orleans). This order was issued Dec 25, 1813.

Resolutions were adopted by the non-coms and privates

refusing to obey. Thy assured the government that they would respond if the state was invaded. They did not take invasion seriously until late in 1814.

In 1814 work had begun on the Naval Yards in Madisonville

A War Dept letter of July 4, 1814 called for 1 Regiment of 1000 men from LA. The general mobilization was not made until after Dec 16, 1814.

The 12th Louisiana Regiment under Col Abner Womack was from St Helena and the 13th under Col Thomas Warner was from the Florida Parishes east of the Tangipahoa River. Both were part of the 3rd Brigade, commanded by General Robert McCausland. The 3rd Brigade was part of Major General Philemon Thomas' 2nd Division.

Line Dupre was reinforced on Jan 1 by portions of the 2nd Div brought from B.R. Line Dupre, the second line of defence, was on the Dupre Plantation 1.75 miles above Line Jackson (the Rodrigues Canal at Chalmette).

Later some elements of the 3rd brigade were moved to the west bank to reinforce General David B. Morgan's troops. Soon afterward on January 12th 1815 General McCausland's entire brigade was moved to Chef Menteur.

The 12th and 13th were consolidated January 31, 1815. (After the Battle of New Orleans).

After the British had withdrawn and the danger had passed the entire Louisiana Brigade was mustered out and discharged March 7th 1815 (at Madisonville Naval Yards)
