    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 Mobile, Alabama; Pascaguala, Mississippi; Harrison Co., Mississippi;
    New Orleans, Louisiana; and Plaquemine Parish, 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.

    Documents indicate they were known as Slavonians, and the majority came from Dalmatia in
    Croatia.

    George Petrovich
    Gettysburg, July 2, 1863

    At 8 a.m. on July 2, 1863, practically the whole of both armies was upon the field at Gettysburg.
    The Confederate Army lost 28,063 men as killed, wounded and missing; the Federals 23,049.
    Some were Croatian.

    Corporal George Petrovich volunteered on July 22, 1861, at Camp Moore, Louisiana, for
    Company D, 10th Louisiana Infantry. (The New Orleans Business Directory for 1860 lists George
    Petrovich at 111 Chartres Street, with a fruit store.) His enlistment papers state his residence at
    New Orleans.

    His service record was impressive, and I would like to pay this valiant young Croatian belated
    respect by stating the major historical battles he participated in as a Confederate soldier:

    Manassas 4 – 16 – 1862
    Williamsburg 5 – 4 — 1862
    Savage Station 6 – 29 – 1862
    Malvern Hill 7 – 1 — 1862
    Cedar Run 8 – 10 – 1862
    Chantilly 9 – 1 — 1862
    Harper's Ferry 9 – 15 – 1862
    Fredericksburg No. 12 – 13 1862
    Chancelorsville 5 – 2 — 1863
    Winchester 6 – 16 – 1863
    Gettysburg 7 – 2 — 1863

    Corporal George Petrovich was wounded at Williamsburg on May 4, 1862. He paid the highest
    respect toward his adopted country at Gettysburg on July 3, 1863. He died in battle far from his
    beloved Dalmatia. Could he be buried at Gettysburg? It would be interesting to know.

    In another regiment at Gettysburg, Jelanovich and Danilovich are listed as missing in action.
    Croatians served in many areas of the South. Steffano Vidovich was in the Italian (!) Guards
    Battalion; Pietro Vukalovich in the European Brigade; and S. Vuskovich in the 21st Alabama
    Infantry.

    Croatian Confederate Companies

    The Confederate organizations of Croatian origin known to the writer were:

    Slavonian Rifles 1st Co. E. Cazadores Esp.
    Regiment Louisiana Militia
    Slavonian Rifles 2nd Co. Cazadores Esp.
    Regiment Louisiana Militia
    Slavonian Rifles Co. Inf. Battalion Louisiana Legion.
    Louisiana Volunteers
    Austrian Guards 4th Regiment European Brigade
    Louisiana Militia Volunteers
    Cognovich's Company 4th Regiment European Brigade
    Louisiana Militia Volunteers

    A few of the officers were Captain Cognevich, 1st Lt. Mark Mazurano, 2nd Lt. Mateo Radovich,
    and 2nd Lt. L. Jovovich.

    Croatians have been a part of America and American history from the beginning.
    The Northern Yanks called Southern soldiers "Johnny Reb"; some were known as "Johnny
    Rebovich."

    Good thread. That's very interesting. Anyway arent there many croat's in deep south? At least i saw once a slovene documentary about so called "deepwater horizon oil spill" and there were some fishermen who said they are of Croat origin.

    Blasco Núñez Vela was a Croat?

    [size=8pt]
    Origins
    Núñez Vela was a native of Ávila, born into an ancient and noble family. The Núñez Vela family, lords of Tabadillo, lived in this area from at least 1403. He was a descendant of Don Pedro Nuñez de la Fuente Almexir (Fuentearmegil) the loyal, who saved the life of the King of Castile, Alfonso VIII in 1163. He was a knight of the Order of Santiago and corregidor of Málaga and Cuenca, Spain, and devoted to the service of the king. One of his brothers was lord of the bedchamber to the king, and another was archbishop of Burgos. Although honest, loyal and courageous, Núñez was also very hot headed.

    A few of the officers were Captain Cognevich, 1st Lt. Mark Mazurano, 2nd Lt. Mateo Radovich,
