The 18th Louisiana, armed with rifles and smooth-bore muskets, and firing from the steep bluffs overhanging the river, forced the landing party to take to their boats, and even drove back the two gunboats—the Lexington and Tyler—inflicting severe loss upon them. This dashing and curious encounter caused the regiment The 18th Louisiana was, at that time, under Colonels Mouton and Roman and Major Bush.
