Southern Style Tours: Laura Plantation Tour From New Orleans

Southern Style Tours: Laura Plantation Tour From New Orleans

Laura: A Creole Plantation offers a fascinating look into the world of the Creoles who at this historic site, lived charmed and tragic lives. In 1936, Laura Locoul Gore completed an eye-witness account of life on a Creole Louisiana sugarcane farm named after her: “Laura Plantation.” Her manuscript details the daily life and major events of the inhabitants, both free and enslaved, of the plantation that she and her maternal forebears ran. Laura’s writings offer an insider’s perspective into a Creole household, spanning four generations of love and greed, pride and betrayal, heroism and pettiness, violence and excess. And, her words are also an explanation to her children as to why she rejected the traditional confines of Louisiana’s Creole world to become a modern American of the 20th Century.
