Today being the 200th anniversary of the day Louisiana officially became an American state, we should probably all take a few seconds to reflect on what a long, amazing, strange journey our state has been on since that day.
In 1850, New Orleans was the third-largest city in the country, and Louisiana was the heart and center of the South. Before and since, it’s seen a history rich with colorful characters like Huey Long and a splendid mixture of people and cultures unrivaled anywhere else in the world. We’ve faced tragedy and triumph, and we continue on strong, grateful to live in a place unlike any other.
So from Shreveport to Monroe to Lake Charles to New Orleans, and all points in between, if you’re a Louisianian, take some time to be proud of your 200-year old home.
