Memories of the Old Plantation Home


Memories of the Old Plantation Home: A Creole Family Album

By Laura Locoul Gore

In 1936, Laura Locoul Gore compiled an account of nearly 100 years of life on a Louisiana sugar plantation named after her: Laura Plantation. Her manuscript, only recently discovered in St. Louis, Missouri, details the daily life and major events of the inhabitants, both free and enslaved, of the plantation that she and her female forebearers ran.

Also available in French.
