From Bergeron, LA Confed. Units, 91-92:

"This regiment was organized at Camp Moore on June 15, 1861, with 889 men. Six companies of the regiment reached Manassas, Virginia, on July 17. During the battle there on July 21, the regiment was in reserve guarding supplies and was not engaged. Soon afterwards, the regiment became part of what was known as the 1st Louisiana Brigade, along with the 6th, 7th, and 9th Louisiana regiments and the 1st Louisiana Special Battalion. The brigade wintered in northern Virginia and in the spring joined General Stonewall Jackson’s army in the Shenandoah Valley. On May 23, 1862, the regiment participated in the capture of Front Royal. The men fought in the Battle of Winchester, May 25, but suffered few casualties. Federal troops captured a portion of the regiment on May 30 at Front Royal while the men were guarding supplies. The regiment saw limited action at Cross Keys, June 8, and was heavily engaged at Port Republic, June 9. During the Seven Days’ Battles near Richmond, the regiment fought at Gaines’ Mill, June 27, and at Malvern Hill, July 1. The regiment skirmished with the enemy at Bristoe Station and Kettle Run, August 27-28. In the first day’s fighting at 2nd Manassas, August 29, the men helped drive back an enemy attack. The men fought again at Chantilly, September 1. In the bloody Battle of Sharpsburg, September 17, 103 men were killed or wounded. The regiment was held in reserve during the Battle of Fredericksburg, December 13. On May 3 and 4, 1863, the regiment fought in the actions at Marye’s Heights and Salem Church. The men remained in reserve during the skirmishing at Winchester, June 13-14. On July 1, the brigade helped rout part of the Federal army near Gettysburg. The regiment participated in the attack on Cemetery Hill, July 2, and lost its flag in the fighting. After the army returned to Virginia, the regiment took part in the Bristoe Station Campaign, October 9-22. The enemy overran the brigade at Rappahannock Station on November 7 and captured 162 officers and enlisted men of the regiment. The brigade attacked the Federals on May 5, 1864, during the Battle of the Wilderness. On May 12, the brigade helped stop the Federal attack that overran most of the entrenchments known as the Mule Shoe. After seeing some fighting at Cold Harbor, June 1-3, the remnants of the regiment accompanied the brigade to the Shenandoah Valley. The men fought in the battles of Monocacy, July 9; Winchester, July 24; Shepherdstown, August 25; Winchester, September 19; Fisher’s Hill, September 21-22; and Cedar Creek, October 19. In December, the brigade rejoined the army at Petersburg and saw some fighting there in February and March, 1865. At Appomattox on April 9, 3 officers and 54 enlisted men surrendered. Of the total of 1,321 men enrolled in the regiment during the war, 252 were killed, 171 died of disease, 2 were murdered, and 1 died in an accident. About 80 men deserted from the regiment."

LeBlanc/Lieut. Co. C, 8th. La./Killed July 1st 1862."  The grave remained undisturbed for 27 years, until Francis H. Osbourne, guardian of the nearby U.S. national cemetery, noticed the impromptu headboard "standing solitary in the midst of the woods."  Osbourne contacted Governor Francis T. Nicholls of LA & offered to facilitate the removable of the LT's body to LA.  The Company C survivors' association, chaired by former 2LT T. Laizer BROUSSARD, organized the burial ceremony.  Survivors of the company formed an honor guard for the LT's body, which lay in state at DUCHAMP's Hall in St. Martinville until 5 p.m., Saturday, 3 Aug 1889, when it was moved to the St. Martin Catholic Church for a funeral mass conducted by the Rev. LANGLOIS.  After the funeral mass, LT LE BLANC's remains were re-interred in his family's vault in St. Martin Catholic Cemetery, across the river, several blocks from the church. More than 1,500 people, including 300 local girls dressed in white & carrying palm wreaths, attended the funeral & the burial ceremony; the principal eulogy at the gravesite was delivered by the Honorable Felix VOORHIES of the company survivors' association.  Legend has it that when LT LE BLANC's body was dug up on the battlefield, it was still in perfect condition.  //  Booth, LA Confed.
