Louisiana Military Housing
Louisiana sits above the Gulf of Mexico at the mouth of the Mississippi River, bordered by Arkansas to the north, Mississippi to the east and Texas to the west. Originally colonized by the French during the 18th century, it became U.S. territory as part of the historic Louisiana Purchase in 1803, and was admitted to the union in 1812. Louisiana's capital city is Baton Rouge. It is also home to the historic port city New Orleans, which is famous for its unique cuisine, jazz and spectacular Mardi Gras festival.
Some of the very unique things concerning the City of New Orleans is that a lot of the city lies in the base of the Mississippi River below sea level and is shielded with some levies. Needless to say this was an important factor why it was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Nevertheless, its location is among the primary reasons it's among the busiest ports in America and makes it a prime place for the fishing sector. Nevertheless, it's the climate of Louisiana which causes it to be well suited for growing agricultural goods like sugar cane, rice, sweet potatoes, and cotton.
