We are having a great time celebrating Louisiana's birthday this year. I decided the Bicentennial is a great time to recognize some of the incredible talents, personalities, successes and even some blunders that have come from or through our state.
I developed a list of the 200 most notable people in Louisiana history. It is not necessarily a list of our greatest, most popular or, even, most significant people. It is a compilation of individuals whose influence was felt in Louisiana, but also spread beyond our borders.
