Why, Louisiana is notorious for purchasing the top 40 recording artists from the 1960s to 1980s, especially the Rock 'n Roll Artists who were later inducted into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. Lady Ga Ga oversaw the ceremony for the purchase, and she ended up purchased as well ! It was a historical …event for rock and roll, which had only limited popularity in Louisiana prior to this purchase. During part of the ceremony, many surviving rock 'n rollers played their CD compilations over loud speakers; they were too hoarse to perform because they had just performed from Woodstock.

After the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the part of the Louisiana Purchase that would eventually become the State of Louisiana was organized into the Territory of Orleans. The Territory of Louisiana was the other part of the Louisiana purchase that became the State of Arkansas and everything North …of that. (The land north of Lake Ponchartrain and east of the Mississippi River was known as "West Florida" and was owned at the time by Great Britain.) (MORE)

There is one main problem with emancipated minor laws. I know this from the heart, by the way, emancipated minor status is something I once desperately wished to achieve--and did. The biggest problem with United States emancipation laws is that virtually all of them require written consent of at lea…st one parent. If you can get that, you are home free. Or "Do not pass Go, Get out of Home Free." But that is so very hard to get. Usually, I would think, if one can get one's parents consent to emancipate him or her, one would not need that consent in the first place. The parents are either too nice or do not care enough about the child's presence in the home to worry whether or not the child is there. You can sometimes get around the parental consent business by marriage, which is what I did, and also what was done by my ex-husband. As I have said before, the "ex" in front of the word "husband" says more than I can say in many words here. None of this was a good idea for either of us--and we came from houses where, at least in part, one might suspect it would be. My best advice is to be careful. A: By turning 18, get married, join the military or get emancipation by the court. A: Marry a cousband, brosband or bruncle. (MORE)
Louisiana was first claimed by the French. During the Seven Years' War between the French and the British, Louisiana was traded over from France to their ally, Spain, so the British would not acquire the territory if they won, which they did. After the Seven Years' War, France was basically booted o…ut of the North American mainland by the British. The territory remained Spanish until Napoleon came to power, in which France then took the territory back in hopes of building an empire in North America. However, as time went by they saw that this wouldn't happen. France had hoped to use this land with their slave company in Haiti, in which the slaves would produce crops such as sugar or tobacco. Haiti's revolts ruined this plan and the French were stuck with a useless chunk of land. Here's where the US comes in. The US had its eyes on New Orleans, the major French trading post in Louisiana, which is still present today. The US went to France to purchase New Orleans and its surrounding land. France agreed but threw in a little bonus: the whole territory of Louisiana. The US agreed and paid a total of $11,250,000. The unintended purchase of Louisiana really kicked off the Manifest Destiny idea as well. (MORE)
There is no president of a state. The President of the US is over all 50 states. A governor is the head of a state. Louisiana has never been an independent country and has never had its own president or king or emperor. Before it belonged to the United States it was ruled by Spain and France at diff…erent times.

Not entirely. The Louisiana Purchase included a huge swath of land west of the Mississippi River -- the Louisiana Territory (French Le Louisiane ) was nearly as large as the existing United States, including all or part of 13 current US states. The intent of the Purchase was to acquire the port of… New Orleans. Napoleon, unable or unwilling to maintain control of New France, offered to sell the entirety of the remaining French claims in North America. (MORE)

All of the usual holidays. Christmas, Easter, Valentines day, Fourth of July, etc. The only other one is Mardi Gras. Its crazy in New Orleans but we celebrate it everywhere else.
The fleur-de-lis is widely used in Louisiana, one reason being that it is the symbol of the New Orleans Saints NFL football team. . Anything in the Mardi Gras colors--purple, green, and gold--is often connected to Louisiana. . Phrases in French, such as laissez les bon temps rouler (let the goo…d times roll,) and c'est la vie (that's life,) are used in everyday conversation in Louisiana. . Also, the brown pelican is the state bird, the magnolia is the state flower, the bald cypress is the state tree, and the state colors are blue, white, and gold. "You Are My Sunshine" is one of the state songs. (MORE)
