October 10 Meeting featured Clyde Aucoin and his second in a series of three programs describing General Grant's Vicksburg Campaign. Clyde has an exceptional memory and really makes the campaign come to life with his slide presentation from the battlefield.
I have communicated with the great grandson of General Pemberton for the past 20 years. J.D. Pemberton is over 90 years old at this time and is as sharp in memory as a person can be. Clyde recently spoke to Mr. Pemberton by phone about his famous ancestor.

of Compatriot Don Boudreaux.
underpass and just a few blocks on the left is Charlie's, you go about a mile and you will come to a dead end intersection at old Hwy 90 which is Franklin's Main Street. At that intersection you take a right and go on into town a couple miles until you get to the intersection of Main and Iberia Street (a stop light). You go on and the next intersection is Adams Street, the next street is Jackson Street, take a left there and go one block and that dead ends at the Bayou Teche. Take a right and that is Teche Street. On the right after Scelfo Cleaners is the Young-Sanders Center. There is parking in front on the left side next to the Bayou.

The purpose of our Camp is to honor our ancestors who fought against overwhelming odds when their home states seceded from the union. They responded to their Country's call much like our current soldiers who now fight in Iraq. Many did not want to fight, much less die. But soldiers across history have responded to a call to service. I am proud of my ancestors service to their country and I am proud of my own service to my country. God Bless our soldiers who are now in harms way and fighting for our freedom.
Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans:
you, Sons of
Confederate Veterans, we submit the vindication of the Cause for which
fought; to your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate
good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his
perpetuation of those principles he loved and which made him glorious
you also cherish. Remember, it is your duty to see that the true
history of the
South is presented to future generations."
- Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General, United Confederate Veterans, New Orleans, Louisiana, 1906

For those who think that our ancestors fought to preserve slavery I submit the following :
In all their motley array there was hardly a uniform to be seen, and then, and throughout all the brilliant campaign on which they were about to enter there was nothing to distinguish their officers, even a general, from the men in the ranks, save a bit of red flannel, or a piece of cotton cloth, fastened to the shoulder, or to the arm, of the former. But for all that they were the truest and best of soldiers. Many of them, when just emerging from endured to the dangers and privations of the wilderness; and many had engaged in the hot strife which had ensanguined the prairies of Kansas.
there was hardly a man who could not read and write, and who was not
intelligent than the great mass of American citizens; not one who had
voluntarily abandoned his home with all its tender ties, and thrown
away all his
possessions, and left father and mother, or wife and children, within
enemy's lines, that he might himself stand by the South in her hour of
peril, and help her to defend her fields and her firesides. And among
there was not a man who had come forth to fight for slavery.
Thomas L. Snead, on the Missouri State Guard in his book, Fight For Missouri.
General Hebert's Life in Brief
Louis Hebert, a first cousin of General Paul O. Hebert, and a
brother-in-law of Gen. Walter H. Stevens, was born in Iberville Parish, La., March 13, 1820. His early education came from private tutors on the family plantation.
Later he attended Jefferson College in La. and graduated third in the class of
1845 at West Point. He resigned two years later to take charge of his father's
sugar interests. During the years before the outbreak of the War for Southern
Independence, he was an officer of militia; a member of the state senate, and
chief engineer of La. Hebert entered the Confederate Army as a colonel of the
3rd La. Infantry. He fought with credit at Wilson's Creek, and was captured
with a large part of his command at the battle of Elkhorn. After being exchanged,
he was promoted to brigadier general on May 26, 1862. He commanded the 2nd
Brigade of Gen. Henry Little's division of Price's army in North Mississippi,
taking a gallant part in the battles of Iuka, Corinth, and in the siege of
Vicksburg. He was subsequently and until the end of the war in charge of the heavy artillery in and around Fort Fisher, North Carolina; and also acted as chief
engineer of the Confederate War Dept in that state. He returned to La. upon the
cessation of hostilities and spent the remaining years of his life editing a
newspaper and teaching in private schools in Iberville and St. Martin Parishes, in the latter of which his death occurred on Jan. 7, 1901. He was buried near Cecilia, La. and later re-buried by the Sons of Confederate Veterans at St.
Joseph's Cemetery in Cecilia, LA.

The Camp has now joined the Adopt-A-Road project and adopted both sides the road within 1/4 mile of the Camp Pratt Memorial Marker on Highway 182 North of New Iberia, LA. Signs have been installed by the Louisiana State Highway Department. Our mission is to keep the area at and near the marker litter free. Thanks to all our members who participated in the first clean up on April 15, 2006
Brig. General John G. Pratt Memory Honored
A year long project to honor further the memory of General John G. Pratt has finally come to fruition in Portland, Connecticut. Hebert Camp 1st.Lt.Commander , Perry Vannoy, started a search for the gravesite of the General and by library research and electronic communications he was able to contact and establish communications with Hartford, Connecticut Historian and Archivist Robert G. Carroon Mr. Carroon was able to locate the Pratt family burial plot in the town of Portland, Connecticut .There was nothing on the burial markers to indicate that Mr. Pratt had been a CSA General or a resident and sugar cane planter in Opelousas, Louisiana .
In a series of written and phone conversations over the course of a year , Compatriot Perry Vannoy and Mr. Carroon planned a memorial service to be held at the gravesite with local re-enactors of both the Union and Confederate Armies, all descendants of soldiers of the War Between The States in attendance.
The Louis Hebert Camp 2032 commissioned a bronze plaque to be manufactured with the inscription written by local Louisiana resident Mr. Pratt Munsen, great -great grandson of General Pratt.
On Sunday, July 30, 2006, in Portland, Connecticut, the above plaque was placed on the Pratt Tombstone in a reverent ceremony attended by Camp 2032 Commander Clarence Bonin and Compatriot Donald Boudreaux, and Mr. Pratt Munsen and a dozen members of his family all descendants of General Pratt.
General John G. Pratt has been honored and another historical project of the General Louis Hebert Camp 2032 SCV has been completed.
