      Other notes from same source:
      Newton P. Hawthorne was appointed Sergeant from Private 6 February 1864. He enlisted 26 December 1863 at Natchez, Mississippi. He was occupied as a farmer. Described as having grey eyes, light hair, light complexion, and a height of 5' 8 1/2".

      - Per Wikipedia:
      "By 1860, 47% of the state's [Louisiana] population were enslaved, though the state also had one of the largest free black populations in the United States. Much of the white population, particularly in the cities, supported southern states' rights and slavery, while pockets of support for the U.S. and its government existed in the more rural areas.

      Louisiana declared that it had seceded from the Union on January 26, 1861. New Orleans, the largest city in the South, was strategically important as a port city due to its southernmost location on the Mississippi River and its access to the Gulf of Mexico. The U.S. War Department early on planned for its capture. The city was taken by U.S. Army forces on April 25, 1862. Because a large part of the population had Union sympathies (or compatible commercial interests), the U.S. government took the unusual step of designating the areas of Louisiana then under U.S. control as a state within the Union, with its own elected representatives to the U.S. Congress. For the latter part of the war, both the U.S. and the Confederacy recognized their own distinct Louisiana governors."
