To give a general view of those countries, we should consider them as they are naturally divided into four parts; 1. By that means there is a convenient navigation to this place from our present settlements to New Mexico; and from all the inland parts of North America, farther than we are acquainted with it: and all the natives of that continent, those old friends and allies of the French, have by that means a free and ready access to this place; nigh to which the French formed a settlement, to secure their interest on the frontiers of all our southern colonies. In short this place is the centre of that vast continent, and of all the nations in it, and seems to be intended by nature to command them both; for which reason it ought no longer to be neglected by Britain. The American negotiators were fully aware of this.

Sieur de la Salle reached the mouth of the Mississippi and claimed all the land drained by it and its tributaries for Louis XIV of France in President Jefferson at the time, who saw this as a detriment to the Untied States trading along the Mississippi. First came Panfilo de Narvaez in and then Hernando de Soto in Although the public demanded war, Jefferson held his temper and sent an envoy to Napoleon upping the offer for New Orleans to 10 million dollars.

History of Louisiana book

Ingersoll The earliest years of the colony under Iberville and Bienville are highly detailed. The many advantages that would ensue from the peopling of those southern parts of the continent from our northern colonies, are hardly to be told.

Dumont, an officer who resided two-and-twenty years in the country, and was personally concerned and acquainted with many of the transactions in it; from whom we have extracted some passages, to render this account more complete.

These are sacramental records containing, births, baptisms, marriages, deaths and burials in the Diocese of Baton Rouge which includes, Ascension, Assumption, E. It may be observed, that all the countries in America are only populous in the inland History of Louisiana book, and generally at a distance from navigation; as the sea coasts both of North and South America are generally low, damp, excessively hot, and unhealthful; at least in all the southern parts, from which alone we can expect any considerable returns.

Shreveport is second only to New Orleans among Louisiana cities in the number of historic landmarks. The other large branches of the Ohio, the river of the Cherokees, and the Wabache, afford a like navigation, from lake Erie in the north to the Cherokees in the south, and from thence to the bay of Mexico, by the Missisippi: not to mention the great river Missouri, which runs to the north-west parts of New Mexico, much farther than we have any good accounts of that continent.

They have not only included under that name all the western parts of Virginia and Carolina; and thereby imagined, that they had, from this nominal title, a just right to those antient dominions of the crown of Britain: but what is of worse consequence perhaps, they have equally deceived and imposed upon many, by the extravagant hopes and unreasonable expectations they had formed to themselves, of the vast advantages they were to reap from those countries, as soon as they had usurped them; which when they came to be disappointed in, they ran from one extreme to another, and condemned the country as good for nothing, because it did not answer the extravagant hopes they had conceived of it; and we seem to be misled by their prejudices, and to be drawn into mistakes by their artifice or folly.

When the war ended inLouisiana underwent a period of Reconstruction. The rest of the Louisiana Purchase was known as the Louisiana Territory.

By endeavoring to take in every thing, he descends to many trifles; and by dwelling too long on a subject, he comes to render it obscure, by being prolix in things which hardly relate to what he treats of. The coast alone will supply all the products of North America, and is as convenient to navigation as any part of it, without going nigh the Missisippi; so that it is with good reason our author says, "That country promises great riches to such as shall inhabit it, from the excellent quality of its lands," [Footnote: See p.

Inthe city of New Orleans was established. Shreveport's most famous musician, blues guitarist and singer Huddie William Leadbetter, a. But an old Canadian, named Crimeau, a man of experience, who was perfectly acquainted with that coast, boasted of being able to do it, and succeeded; for which he was the next year honoured with letters of noblesse.

Also highlighted are the communities the Acadians created on the lower Mississippi, the southwestern prairies, and the eastern bayous of South Louisiana.

If we turn our eyes again to the lands in our northern colonies, it is to be feared we can expect much less from them. If this is the case of those northern colonies on the sea coast, what can we expect from the inland parts; in which the soil is not only more barren, and the climate more severe, but they are, with all these disadvantages, so inconvenient to navigation, both on account of their distance, and of the many falls and currents in the river St.
