Louisiana History

The French (R. R. Cavelier de La Salle 1682) explored and claimed the entire Mississippi river basin discovered by the Spaniards under H. de Soto (1539–42) under the name Louisiana, founded the first permanent settlement in 1699 and New Orleans in 1718. 1717–31 owned by the Compagnie d’Occident and then crown colony, Louisiana was part of the great French attempt in the middle of the 18th century to block the expansion of the British Atlantic colonies to the west, but this failed in the Seven Years’ War. In 1762/63 France ceded the area west of the Mississippi with New Orleans to Spain, that east of the river to England, from where it passed to the USA in 1783. Napoleon I. bought back the Spanish share in the Treaty of San Ildefonso in 1800 and sold it in 1803 for US $ 15 million to the USA (Louisiana Purchase), which more than doubled their area (the borders to the west remained disputed). The southern part was organized as a territory in 1804 and on April 30, 1812, became the 18th state to join the Union; in the remaining parts territories and states only gradually emerged. As a hub for Mississippi and sea shipping, New Orleans quickly rose to become the leading trading center in the South. In the American Civil War, Louisiana joined the Confederation, but came under Union control in 1862 (capture of New Orleans). Louisiana remained a state with strong social and racial tensions, which among other things. the rule of H. P. Long (Governor 1928-31) made possible.

After Second World War

The second wave of the “Great Migration” took place in the forties and fifties of the XX century, when many residents of the “Pelican State” moved to the rapidly developing California. Only towards the end of the sixties, as a result of a stubborn struggle for civil rights in Louisiana, laws providing for racial segregation were repealed.

On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina, one of the worst natural disasters in US history, hit the Louisiana coast near New Orleans. Despite the fact that a large-scale evacuation of the population was carried out the day before, more than a hundred thousand people remained in the city, mostly residents of poor areas. Due to showers and strong winds, the speed of which exceeded 200 km / h, the water began to overflow through the protective dams and later destroyed them. About 80% of the city area was flooded, and the water level in some places exceeded 4.5 meters. People fled the flood on the roofs of houses, about thirty thousand people took refuge in the giant indoor stadium “Superdome”.

The consequences of Katrina for Louisiana were terrible: 1,464 people died, tens of thousands of homes, roads and bridges were destroyed, almost a million residents of the state were left without electricity for several days. In addition, “Katrina” dealt a severe blow to the economy of Louisiana, the material damage from the hurricane exceeded one hundred billion dollars.
