    In 1828, a teenaged Abraham Lincoln guided a flatboat down the Mississippi River to New Orleans. The adventure marked his first visit to a major city and exposed him to the nation's largest slave marketplace. It also nearly cost him his life, in a nighttime attack in the Louisiana plantation country. That trip, and a second one in 1831, would form the two longest journeys of Lincoln's life, his only visits to the Deep South, and his foremost experience in a racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse urban environment. Lincoln in New Orleans: The 1828-1831 Flatboat Voyages and Their Place in History reconstructs, to levels of detail and analyses never before attempted, the nature of those two journeys and examines their influence on Lincoln's life, presidency, and subsequent historiography.

  • Jazz in the Garden - celebrating the 100th anniversary of the first jazz recording

    Louisiana Landmarks Society will hold its 4th annual Fête du Jardin at the Pitot House on Sunday, October 22. “Jazz in the Garden," celebrating the 100th anniversary of the first jazz recording, will include New Orleans cuisine, wine, and music in our cherished setting.

     

    In perfect alignment with our theme, we are thrilled to announce that the Louisiana Repertory Jazz Ensemble will be performing at the Fête. Just back in town from a fabulous tour overseas, they are now working on a new recording of the forgotten works of Sam Morgan from the 1920’s.  If you haven’t heard them, you are in for a real treat!
