Athletic Teams' Mascot – The Generals

  • The LSUA Generals' Baseball, Softball, Basketball, Soccer, and Tennis teams, known as the LSUA Generals, earned the name from the significant history of Central Louisiana in the early years of World War II.
  • Alexandria, Pineville and regional Central Louisiana were the homes to numerous Army training camps and facilities.
  • In 1940 and 1941, the region was selected to host the "Louisiana Maneuvers" in which the planning and logistics for the United States' entry into the European Theater of World War II were undertaken.
  • More than 350,000 soldiers undertook the multi-month mock battles and maneuvers that over the entire region from Alexandria west into Texas and north up to Shreveport.
  • Leading these maneuvers, planning efforts and participating in this undertaking were several United States General Officers and several who would soon be promoted to the rank of General Officer, including Omar Bradley, Mark Clark, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Walter Krueger, Ben Lear, Lesley J. McNair and George Patton. General Dwight D. Eisenhower would eventually be named the Supreme Commander of all Western allied troops in the European Theater and later become President of the United States.
