The first settlement in the Louisiana area dates back to 16,000 years ago.

When René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle (1643–1687), sailed along the Mississippi River to its mouth in 1682, he declared almost the entire catchment area of ​​one of the world’s largest rivers to be the territory under the sovereignty of King Louis XIV of France.

In 1718, Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, sieur de Bienville (1680–1768), founded the city of New Orleans in the Mississippi Delta, and in 1731 the royal colony of Louisiana was born. The influx of immigrants began, within which the so-called Cajuns, French-speaking settlers expelled by the British from Nova Scotia, formed a distinctive community. In 1762, Louisiana fell into Spanish hands and remained Spanish until 1800, when Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) bought it. French and Spanish rule marked Louisiana’s unique legal system, and their influence is evident in New Orleans architecture and culture to this day.

As early as 1803, the United States was bought by the United States under the so-called Louisiana Purchase. With this remarkable trade agreement, the United States has acquired more than 2 million km 2 of land at a cost of less than 3 cents per acre.

In Louisiana, as in other southern states, cotton and sugar cane growers were dependent on the work of large numbers of black slaves. Louisiana’s opposition to North interference and the abolition of slavery was great, and in 1861 it was one of the founding states of the Confederacy. Less than a year later, Union troops occupied New Orleans. In 1868, Louisiana was re-admitted to the Union, but did not change the line much. The 1898 constitution denied most blacks the right to vote, and this situation persisted until the civil rights campaigns in the 1960s.

Today’s Louisiana is no longer an agricultural state. Cotton has given way to soybeans, rice and subtropical fruit. The most important is the extraction of oil and natural gas, which makes Louisiana the fifth largest exporter among all the states of the Union. The production of salt and aluminum is also important. New Orleans and Baton Rouge are among the largest U.S. ports. Many tourists come to the French Quarter of New Orleans, who are attracted by the beautiful colonial architecture, cultural traditions and casual nightlife. New Orleans is famous as the birthplace of jazz, its traditional carnival parade is also known as part of the Mardi Gras festival (Tuesday before Ash Wednesday).
