This is a public history blog about Louisiana,its people, its stories, but most of all its rich spirit, that prevaled despite the damage from Katrina. I am approaching this blog as a cultural investigator of Louisiana, the most interesting and magical state in the country. I will show you what I discovered in the French Quarter and the Garden District and about the people there as well as the architecture and the beautiful sugarcane plantations on River Road that still exist. I hope I can help you to see how special this place is and its cultural importance. We can never give up on this unique place, the Louisianan spirit is a strong one and there is much to learn from them. I want to also explore how Hurricane Katrina affected the people there and I will provide links ,videos and interviews of people there and how they have handled this. I do not know where this blog will take us, but I think it will be an adventure.
