The 12th Louisiana Infantry was organized at Camp Moore, Louisiana in August 1861 with ten companies of volunteers from several northern Louisiana parishes. In the spring of 1862 two additional companies were added bringing the total to 12 companies. In July 1862, "first Company M" was merged with Company C into a new Company C. In September of 1862 a company of exchanged prisoners of war that had belonged to the 9th Louisiana Infantry was added to the regiment and designated "second Company M." The 12th Louisiana organization carried twelve companies for the balance of the war.
