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.
