All About New Orleans

Located along the Mississippi River, New Orleans has a rich and unique history. This city was first settled in 1718 by the French, giving it much of the culture it is known for today. The Big Easy, as the city is often referred to, is recognized all over the world for the distinct dialect of the locals, Creole cuisine, and the unique jazz music played along the French Quarter and elsewhere. Mardi Gras is just one of the celebrations held in New Orleans, but it is the most popular with people coming every year from around the world.

The History

While the French were first to colonize New Orleans and Louisiana, the Spanish also recognized the value of this location and gained control in the Treaty of Paris in 1763. The city became an important port for boats transporting supplies up and down the river from the Gulf. Several Native American tribes made this area their home as well, including the Natchez Indians.

Because of the popularity of the ports for boats to deliver goods, New Orleans also developed the slave trade in the 1700’s. The people brought to the area from Africa developed a unique society known as Afro-Creole, which also incorporated a distinct religion known as voodoo.

New Orleans and all of Louisiana became part of the U.S. in 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase. After this change, new people came to the area, including Irish, Italians, Germans, and Poles. They brought with them their own beliefs and cultural heritage, which has made the city a unique blend of peoples and traditions.
