A Brief History of Louisiana
- The state of Louisiana has been controlled by several different European powers before it eventually became a part of the United States following the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Settlers from both France and Spain laid claim to the area that would become New Orleans (well, much of southern Louisiana, actually), and New Orleans has been a city since before Louisiana was admitted as a state in 1812 and enjoyed a rich cultural heritage that it still enjoys to this day. Louisiana would play a critical role in the War of 1812, specifically New Orleans, which was the site of the last battle of the war and actually occurred two weeks after the official end of the conflict (news traveled slow back then). Over the years Louisiana has continually changed and evolved, and today the state is one of the most culturally diverse of all 50 states.
What to Expect When Shipping to or from Louisiana
- The state of Louisiana usually isn’t the most popular of locations to transport a vehicle to or from, but it does help that New Orleans – one of the most popular auto transport locations in the U.S. – is located in the “toe” part of the state (it’s shaped like a boot), which means that there are plenty of carriers that go into and out of New Orleans all the time. With major interstates such as I-10 and I-55 running through the city, many carriers will deliver to other metro areas along those routes. I-10 is one of the most popular auto transport corridors in the south; it runs from Jacksonville, Florida all the way west to Los Angeles in one continuous interstate. This makes east-west trips for carriers that much easier, and since the interstate passes through so many major areas in other states you should be able to find great deals when transporting from one area to another along it. I-55 runs north-south and is a primary interstate for trucks running into the northern states through Mississippi and others states before hitting Chicago, Illinois.
