Welcome to the online edition of The Bienville Rifle.  The goal of this newsletter is to provide our members and the public, information regarding the history and reenacting of the War between the States specific to Louisiana and surroundings.


There will be no event news to publish as the members are no longer active as a group.  I'm currently moving the old newsletters and passing on news about former members.
