- View Full Item
- Created Date
A 1931 reprint of an 1858 map showing the Mississippi River plantations between New Orleans and Natchez, Miss. The map has river mile markers and may have been used by riverboat captains to locate particular properties for deliveries or shipments. The vast majority of these sugar and cotton plantations had landings from (or to) which supplies and crops were shipped, and this map shows the extent, owner, and name of each plantation along the river. Ferries, streams, bayous, parish boundaries, railroads, river towns, churches, convents, colleges, and sugar refineries are shown. Two bucolic insets at top depict a cotton plantation with landing and a sugar plantation and refinery.
