Course Description and Objectives: This course is intended to provide a general survey of Louisiana’s history from the earliest days of European colonization to the present. Although the primary focus will be on events that took place within the boundaries of the colony, territory and state, we will also cover material intended to help students understand Louisiana’s history in terms of relevant regional, national, and international events and contexts. Within those broad parameters, students will be required to demonstrate familiarity with objective facts from the assigned reading material AND to develop an accurate mental timeline of important people, events, eras, and developments in the state’s history. Drawing on BOTH lecture materials AND reading assignments, students will also be asked to develop and express historically informed opinions about the significance of the state’s history in essay questions on all three exams. : Bennett H.
