  • Anthony Cognevich (1833 - 1908)
    I have shown Anthony as the brother of Stefan Cognevich. This has not been proven.

During the American Civil War, many Croatians served as individuals and in organized Croatian companies. They fought for the South.

Their service was not unusual or accidental, as they were a part of the South in numbers since the 1760's. They were in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. A Dalmatian, Juan Matulich, was selling guns and whiskey to the Indians in the 1760's; another, Marco Givanovich, owned a pre-Civil War plantation worth over $400,000.
