J.H.Colton's map of the state of Louisiana and eastern part of Texas compiled from United States surveys, and other authentic sources.

Louisiana had been very prosperous in the years leading up to the American Civil War. The farmers of Louisiana vigorously grew sugar, raised cotton, and grazed cattle and hogs, during the early 1800's.

Louisiana’s economy suffered greatly during the civil war and didn’t recover fully until well into the 1900's. In the years following the war soybeans and rice were instilled as the state’s most popular crops. Agriculture helped to re-establish Louisiana’s economy in the early 1900's, along with a valuable oil boom in the western part of the state and into Texas.

This map published in 1863 by Joseph Hutchins Colton shows cities and towns, counties, waterways, mills and the railroad network.
