The State of Louisiana monument in Gettysburg was dedicated on June 11, 1971. Louisiana was the seventh largest contingent and the seventh highest casualties of the twelve Confederate states at Gettysburg.
The monument is entitled “Spirit Triumphant.” It was created by Donald DeLue and represents a wounded gunner of New Orleans Washington Artillery clutching a Confederate battle flag to his heart. Above him the Spirit of the Confederacy sounds a trumpet and raises a flaming cannonball.
