Before the American purchase of the territory in 1803, the current Louisiana State had been both a French colony and for a brief period, a Spanish one.
In addition, colonists imported numerous African people as slaves in the 18th century.
Louisiana's capital is Baton Rouge and its largest city is New Orleans. The largest parish by population is East Baton Rouge Parish, and the largest by total area is Plaquemines.
Louisiana is bordered by Arkansas to the north, Mississippi to the east, Texas to the west, and the Gulf of Mexico to the south.
The Mississippi River flows along a ridge formed by its own natural deposits (known as a levee), from which the lands decline toward a river beyond at an average fall of six feet per mile (3 m/km).
The alluvial region includes low swamp lands, coastal marshlands and beaches, and barrier islands that cover about 20,000 square miles (52,000 km).The state also has political jurisdiction over the approximately 3-mile (4.8 km)-wide portion of subsea land of the inner continental shelf in the Gulf of Mexico.Through a peculiarity of the political geography of the United States, this is substantially less than the 9-mile (14 km)-wide jurisdiction of nearby states Texas and Florida, which, like Louisiana, have extensive Gulf coastlines.The sediments were carried from north to south by the Mississippi River.In between the Tertiary rocks of the north, and the relatively new sediments along the coast, is a vast belt known as the Pleistocene Terraces.
There are several hundred salt domes in the state; one of the most familiar is Avery Island.
