Orleans Boot Camp
The state of Louisiana
is a state located in the southern region of the United States of America.
Its capital is Baton Rouge and largest city
is New Orleans. Louisiana is the only state
in the U.S. with political subdivisions termed parishes, which are local
governments equivalent to counties. The largest parish by population is
Jefferson Parish, and the largest by land area is Cameron Parish.
Street New Orleans, LA
Some Louisiana urban environments
have a multicultural, multilingual heritage, being so strongly influenced
by an admixture of 18th century French, Spanish and African cultures that
they are considered to be somewhat exceptional in the U.S. Before the American
influx and statehood at the beginning of the 19th century, the territory
of current Louisiana State had been a Spanish and French colony. In addition,
the pattern of development included importing numerous Africans in the
18th century, with many from the same region of West Africa, thus concentrating
Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday
in English) in New Orleans, Louisiana, is
a Carnival celebration well-known throughout the world.
The New Orleans Carnival
season, with roots in preparing for the start of the Christian season of
Lent, starts after Twelfth Night, on Epiphany (January 6). It is a season
of parades, balls (some of them masquerade balls), and king cake parties.
It has traditionally been part of the winter social season; at one time
"coming out" parties for young women at débutante balls were timed
for this season.
Gras, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA Photographic Print
Celebrations are concentrated
for about two weeks before and through Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras in French),
the day before Ash Wednesday. Usually there is one major parade each day
(weather permitting); many days have several large parades. The largest
and most elaborate parades take place the last five days of the season.
In the final week of Carnival, many events large and small occur throughout
New Orleans and surrounding communities.
The parades in New Orleans
are organized by Carnival krewes. Krewe float riders toss throws to the
crowds; the most common throws are strings of plastic colorful beads, doubloons
(aluminum or wooden dollar-sized coins usually impressed with a krewe logo),
decorated plastic throw cups, and small inexpensive toys. Major krewes
follow the same parade schedule and route each year.

Rouge is the capital and second-largest city in Louisiana, United States.
It is located in East Baton Rouge Parish. Baton Rouge is located in the

historical importance to its site upon Istrouma Bluff, the first bluff
upriver from the Mississippi River Delta, which protects the city’s residents
from flooding and other natural disasters. In addition to this natural
barrier, the city has built a levee system stretching from the bluff southward
to protect the riverfront and low-lying agricultural areas.
Baton Rouge is a major industrial
and petrochemical center of the American South. The Port of Baton Rouge
is the ninth largest in the United States in terms of tonnage shipped.
The Baton Rouge region is called the "Capital Area."

Orleans is a major United States port and the largest city and metropolitan
area in the state of Louisiana. The city is named after Philippe

known for its distinct French Creole architecture, as well as its cross
cultural and multilingual heritage. New Orleans is also famous for its
cuisine, music (particularly as the birthplace of jazz), and its annual

Katrina - New Orleans was catastrophically impacted by the failure
of the Federal levee system during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. By the time
the hurricane approached the city at the end of August 2005, most residents
had evacuated. As the hurricane passed through the Gulf Coast region, the
city's federal flood protection system failed, resulting in the worst civil
engineering disaster in American history. Floodwalls and levees constructed
by the United States Army Corps of Engineers failed below design specifications
and 80% of the city flooded. Tens of thousands of residents who had remained
in the city were rescued or otherwise made their way to shelters of last
resort at the Louisiana Superdome or the New Orleans Morial Convention
Center. Over 1,500 people died in Louisiana and some are still unaccounted
for. Hurricane Katrina called for the first mandatory evacuation in the
city's history, the second of which came 3 years later with Hurricane Gustav.
