About Thomas Overton Moore

Thomas Moore held office through the secession crisis after the election of Abraham Lincoln, the formation of the Confederate States of America and the first three years of the War Between the States.

After Lincoln's election, Moore directed the state militia to seize control of all Federal military posts in Louisiana. He supported secession and was devoted to the Confederate States of America. After the war broke out, he encouraged enlistment in the Southern armed forces and supplied 8,000 men to the Confederate Army--5,000 more than President Jefferson Davis requested.

Moore advocated a strong defense of New Orleans, clearly seeing its strategic importance in the controlling of the Mississippi River. When New Orleans fell in April, 1862 and Baton Rouge in May, he moved the capital to Opelousas and then to Shreveport where he attempted to organize resistance to the Union forces in Louisiana west of the Mississippi.

Moore prohibited trade with the enemy and promoted the burning of crops likely to be captured by Union forces.

After his term, Thomas Overton
