Golden Shields
1969 - 1971

   The Gold Sheilds was formed and run by Louis Jeffries. This was a corps of urban innercity youths sponsored in part by the New Orleans Police Department of which Louis was a Police Officer. Louis was a contra player and later the drum major of the Southern Rebels from 1966 til he started the Gold Shields in 1969 where he stayed until his untimely death. No  information on other instructors is available. I do know that they did march a few Mardi Gras parades in there blue and gold uniforms.
