Madison Parish Regiments

Regiments Organized from Madison Parish:
Milliken's Bend Guards
Madison Dragoons
Macon Cavaly
Madison Infantry
Madison Light Artilliery
Madison Company
Madison Tipperaries;
The Madison Tips, no doubt upset some local notions about foreign immigrants. It was made up of Irishman from Country Tipperary in Ireland. They had been working on the levee until May, 1861, when a shortage of levee funds threatened them with unemployment. They enlisted and formed the Madison Tips. The Tips are said to have been famous fighters who "relished a melee for its own sake." When not fighting the enemy, they fought each other. No doubt they proved to be fearsome soldiers.

A cavalry company formed in Providence, Carroll Parish on Aug. 10, 1861. The courageous and resourceful Lieutenant Cicero M.

Cicero & Columbus Allen, Bailey V. Vinson and McVicker carried his body from the field.
While in Briton's Lane, Tennessee, Cicero Allen was wounded and made prisoner. After being carried to a Federal hospital where they dressed his wounds he walked out of the hospital and found the surgeons horse - leaped into the saddle and fled into the darkness. Afterwards he was called "The One-Armed Scout".

Partisan Rangers

13th Battalian, Louisiana Militia
"The Little Confederate Band"
Governor Thomas Overton Moore authorized the formation of the few remaining milita companies into battalians of Partisan Rangers for state service. The companies of Northeast Louisiana were combined to form the 13th Battalian, Partisan Rangers, under the command of Colonel Frank Bartlett. Headquartered in Delhi, La. There were Co. E, with Captain W. C. Corbin, they were stationed in Floyd, and Co. C, which was composed of men from Morehouse Parish, under the command of Captain Jack McKoin and posted at Caledonia, La.
On the 9th of May 1862, the Northerns, about 500 men, had surprised Caledonia's force and crossed Bayou Macon. Bartlett's force, combined with Corbin's, a total of 85 men, marched galantly toward the enemy and ambushed their 2 cavalry regiments, leaving 13 dead and capturing 26 prisoners. The Federals making it to the Mississippi River told of their escape from the overwhelming numbers of Rebels, thinking they had confronted General Taylor's army. A wise Colonel Bartlett went on to make raids at the river, capturing many prisoners and supplies.
Colonel Crawford's 13th Texas Infantry reinforced the little Confederate band and they decided to go into the town of Lake Providence. Crossing Bayou Macon capturing the Federal picket at Bunch's Bend, they headed twoard Lake Providence. The Federal had set fire to the bridge at Baxter Bayou and the Tensas bridge was totally destroyed. The Confederates loss was 3 killed, and 7 wounded.

Carroll Guards

14th Louisiana Infantry, Co. I.
A large company was also raised in Pin Hook, now Oak Grove, known as the Carroll Guards. The Police Jury agreed to support each man’s family in his absence. In addition to these companies formed in the parish, individual residents joined companies formed in adjacent parishes. In these first companies, however, only W. D. Hardeman came from the large planter class. The rest were small planters, merchants, and yeoman farmers.

Confederate Defenders

31st Louisiana, Co. A.
On April 12, another group of Carroll volunteers, the Confederate Defenders, was inducted into the Confederate Army as the 31st Louisiana, Co A, the group included E. J. Delony, George Burrus, John Hays, and A. N. McWilliams.

Carroll Dragoons

Louisiana Cavalry Independent Company
ALTERNATE NAMES: Captain Lott's Company
A bounty offered by the Confederate government of $50 had a response of a company of cavalry and was formed in Carroll by Captain A. J. Lott, who was on detached duty from the Carroll Rebels. Known as the Carroll Dragoons, they were inducted into the service of the Confederacy on March 19, 1862.

FROM AN OLD CONFEDERATE. -------- Canton, Ky., July 4, 1899. Mr. Editor: -- My object in writing you is to find out if some of my old comrades are yet in the land of the living. I went out with Company H, 3rd La. Volunteers, and our company was known as the Monticello Rifles, J.S. Richards, Captain; D. Hardeman, 1st Lieut.; C.A. Hedrick, 2nd Lieut.; Wm. Corban, 3rd Lieut. I have forgotten our orderly sergeant, but he was a good old man, and I think was discharged during the first year of the war. Then H.B. Briggs was made orderly, and served in that capacity until we stacked arms at Vicksburg, thirty-nine years ago to-day. Mr. Briggs was a native of the State of New York, and was as good a soldier as ever fired a gun; but I think our company was made up of as good material as could be found anywhere; officers and men were brave and fearless. I would be glad to hear from some of them. I am an old man now; will be sixty-four years old on the 11th of August, if I should live to that time. It has been so long since I lived in your parish that I have forgotten the names of a great many persons. I am a native of Kentucky, and went to Floyd in 1858, and did business in that place with my brother-in-law, G.M. Langford, and knew a great many people. If I could I would pay dear old Carroll a visit before I die. I had but one sister, and she sleeps on a mound two miles below Floyd, on what was then known as the Creed Motley place, but I will never be able to visit the spot. I know everybody would be strangers now; but if I could see the Lotts, the DeFrance's, the Cheatham's, Draughn, the Montgomery's, the Wyly's Roberts, Delony, Darden, Hanagan's, and a host of other good people, it would be a very great pleasure to me in my old age. Hoping this will be the means of finding some of my old friends.
I am respectfully,

Carroll Guards

14th Louisiana Infantry, Co. I.
A large company was also raised in Pin Hook, now Oak Grove, known as the Carroll Guards. The Police Jury agreed to support each man’s family in his absence. In addition to these companies formed in the parish, individual residents joined companies formed in adjacent parishes. In these first companies, however, only W. D. Hardeman came from the large planter class. The rest were small planters, merchants, and yeoman farmers.
Served under General Robert E. Lee.
