Everything You Need to Know About the State of Louisiana (LA)

The state Louisiana pillars above the Gulf of Mexico just at the front of the Mississippi River, has boundaries with Arkansas to the north, Mississippi to the east and Texas to the west. Originally colonized by the French during the 18th century, it became U.S. territory as part of the legendary Louisiana Purchase in 1803, and was granted statehood in 1812. Louisiana’s capital city is Baton Rouge. Additionally, it is the home to the historic port city New Orleans, which is famous for its unique cuisine, jazz and spectacular Mardi Gras festival.

Louisiana is nicknamed by Sportsman’s Paradise. It stands with the state motto-Union, Justice, Confidence. 

Louisiana: Interesting Things

In 1803, Thomas Jefferson doubled the size of the United States by purchasing the Louisiana Territory—828,000 square miles of land between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains—from France. 

Due to slow communications and transportations, the Battle of New Orleans was fought two weeks after the Treaty of Ghent was signed on December 24, 1814, ending the War of 1812 between the United States and Great Britain. 

With 34 storey height, the Louisiana State Capitol is the tallest among the peer buildings. 

Louisiana is the abode to a widely diversified culture and races. Two prominent ethnic groups are Cajuns, descendants of a French-speaking group of Acadians from Canada, and Creoles, people with a mixed French, Spanish, Caribbean, African and/or Indian background.

Hurricane Katrina made landfall in southeastern Louisiana on August 29, 2005, as a Category-3 storm. The most blasting natural catastrophe in U.S. history that unfolded more than 1,800 deaths—over 1,500 of which were in Louisiana.

    Louisiana offers little in the way of mountainous operations and stiff grades, as the state is almost completely flat. While from a railfan perspective this might be a bit visually boring, the Pelican State is an important source of both originating and terminating traffic with the Port of New Orleans and the lucrative petrochemical industry both located there. Because of this several classic lines tapped into the state, notably wishing to reach New Orleans as it was a vital interchange point and originator of traffic (both passenger and freight). To this date, Louisiana is still served by several Class I railroads (six of the seven) and several short lines allowing for an interesting mix of operations.

I had a seamless first-time vehicle transport experience with Ship A Car, inc. I know that is largely because of Bob Moran, the coordinator who helped me. Personable, patient, professional, always willing to answer further questions, he gave me excellent customer service and I greatly appreciate it! I was so nervous and dreading getting started but Bob put me at ease and I quickly gained great confidence in the company because of his easy and knowledgeable communication. In addition, the driver dispatched to move my car from Los Angeles To St Petersburg, Florida was punctual, called when he was supposed to, prior to pickup/delivery, and made great time completing the transport. He picked up Monday around 2 pm and delivered at 9 am on that Friday. I have nothing but praise for Ship A Car, Inc. and enthusiastically recommend them!

I was shipping my car from Texas to NY. Janet was the one who was helping me all throughout the process. She was very professional, helpful, and responsive. The driver came in front of our house and took the car and dropped it off as scheduled. I would recommend Janet and this company to everyone. It was a Good experience for me.
