Rate this:
Paints a picture of Louisiana as it responded to the upheaval of Jacksonian democracy in the 1820s and 1830s. Describes rival factions among the French and "newcomer" populations and among urban and rural dwellers, and describes the complicated race relations among Creoles, Cajuns, Americans, and blacks. Demonstrates how class tensions, ethnic and cultural concerns, and personality politics intermingled to shape public life and create a unique political pattern with a dualistic system for local and national political action.
