Louisiana – a state in the south of the United States, the 18th state that joined the Union. The capital is Baton Rouge, the largest city is New Orleans (before Hurricane Katrina). The total area is 134,182 km² (31st place in the USA), including 112,927 km² on land. The population is 4.469 million people (22nd place in the USA). Louisiana’s official nickname is the Pelican State.

In the past, Louisiana was the name given to the vast area near the Gulf of Mexico, controlled by the French. After the formation of the United States, a significant part of this territory was the state of the same name.


According to itypetravel, Louisiana borders Texas to the west, Arkansas to the north, Mississippi to the east, and the Gulf of Mexico to the south. The territory of the state is clearly divided into two parts – “upper” and “lower”. The latter is characterized by an abundance of swampy lowlands.


In ancient times, the territory of the state was inhabited by Indians of such tribes as Atakapa, Chitimachas, Houma, etc.

In the 16th century, the territory of present-day Louisiana was discovered and mastered by the Spaniards, in the 17th century the French colonization of the region began. In 1763, the eastern part of the territory of Louisiana was under the control of the British, the western part went first to the Spaniards, then, in 1800, to the French. After the formation of the United States, the eastern part of Louisiana became part of the new state. In 1803, the States also bought western Louisiana from the Napoleonic administration. The territory of the province was divided among several states.

In 1849 the capital of Louisiana was moved from New Orleans to Baton Rouge.

During the Civil War, Louisiana seceded from the Union (January 26, 1861). Federal troops took New Orleans on April 25, 1862.
