The Men




This site is dedicated to 1st Lieutenant George Price Crane, CSA, Battery Commander, Company "A" of the First Louisiana Heavy Artillery Regiment. His was an uncommon valor, common to the men of the South regardless of what motivated them to fight.

Jon S. Crane, great-grandson
New Orleans, Louisiana


George Price Crane c. 1868


There is no other legend quite like the Confederate fighting man. He fought for a star-crossed cause and in the end he was beaten, but as he carried his slashed red battle flag into the dusky twilight of the Lost Cause he marched straight into a leged that will live as long as the American people care to remember anything about the American past. (Bruce Canton)
