History of National Louisiana Day
Louisiana became part of the United States in 1803 when the country bought 828,000 square miles of land for $15 million from France. Louisiana's first statehood was in 1812 after 15 other states were created out of it. When French explorers first arrived, many diverse tribes populated the area. Many of their population were decimated by disease and war. Today, Natchez, Choctaw or Chitimacha descendants still survive there. The exact history of National Louisiana Day seems unclear. Records seem to suggest that this day has been observed since 2017. The founders and reasons for choosing November 9th as the date for observation are unknown.#NationalLouisianaDay #LouisianaDay
