About Louisiana
This ‘Southern state’ was named after the French King Louis XIV, Louisiana was therefore originally a French colony until the year 1803. In that year the young United States bought the state in the ‘Louisiana Purchase’ for only 15 million dollars from Napoleon. Like many Southern states, Louisiana has an infamous slavery past. It was the largest trading place for slaves in all of America, even when it had long been banned. Southern hospitality and Cajun cuisine make Louisiana a unique state within the US. Jambalaya, Gumbo, Po’Boy sandwich and Maque choux are typical Cayun dishes from Louisiana. The largest city of New Orleans is world famous for its blues, jazz and Mardi Gras while you can take boat trips across the swamps in the area. The French influence is still felt and visible everywhere. Louisiana doesn’t have a National Park, but in our opinion, this whole state is a National Park. In Baton Rouge, the capital, you will find the tallest Capitol in all of the US, at 34 stories and 137 meters high.
