This book begins with an introduction about cemeteries in Louisiana and then covers different cemeteries in Louisiana. Generally there is a history of the cemetery, an accounting of some of the more famous people buried in each cemetery and a lot of information.
For someone visiting Louisiana, particularly someone who is considering a tour of the cemeteries, this book is a must.
I bought this book after our trip and though a strange souvenir, it was an interesting and informative part of our trip that I didn't want to forget. Don't miss taking one of the guided trips to one of the cemeteries in New Orleans, no trip would be complete without visiting at least one just for the history alone. We found the guides that do the tours to be very passionate about the history of New Orleans and were very interested in sharing the stories and answering your questions no matter how bizarre.Read more ›
