Louisiana’s magnificent antebellum plantation homes draw thousands of visitors each year to the state. The tourists come to see the stately live oaks, the imposing columns, the luxurious 19th-century furnishings.But what the visitors most probably won’t encounter is any meaningful …
The history of the slavery have been left out on many of the tours. When I take the plantation tours (and I have been on many) I always asked about a typical day of a slave on that plantation. Many of tour guides have a problem in answering. I feel the complete story should be told. The good, the bad and the ugly. This is part of the United States history no matter how bad it is.
