F2_10 Louisiana's Historic River Road
Organizer: Skeeter Dixon, University of Southern Mississippi
We will enjoy a day-long tour along south Louisiana's historic River Road; one of the most visited sites in the state! Our travel will head up-river on the east bank and return down-river on the west bank. The trip will cover the engineering of the Mississippi River, stops at several historic plantations, early settlement and the French, Spanish, and German cultural milieu, the petroleum industry and environmental concerns along "Cancer Alley", religious landscapes, and a view of south Louisiana's Cajun Culture.
