This Will Be War: Louisiana Secession


Before the war broke out between the North & South, eleven states seceded from the United States of America in 1861. This one of its kind tour lays out the events leading up to the secession of Louisiana, the act of seceding, as well as the actions that followed. Nic Clark leads the narrative while visiting historically significant locations such as the Old State Capitol and old Pentagon Barracks.
This tour puts you in the same building and room where Louisiana lawmakers debated secession and ultimately cast the vote to leave the Union on January 26, 1861. This vote set Louisiana down the path to war.
