Comparing Race, Ethnicity, Slavery, and Freedom in French, Spanish, and Early American Louisiana, 1719-1820

Completion of a book comparing race relations, slavery and freedom in French, Spanish and Early US Louisiana through 1820. Extensive, original archival research in three languages and databases have been completed, calculations made, drafts written, and some chapters have already been published. It will be based on rich, unusual, concrete, revealing documents researched in courthouses throughout Louisiana and archives in France, Spain, Cuba, Louisiana and Texas. Research was collected and databases made under my NEH Collaborative Research Contract (1991-97). It will include database studies, graphs, and tables and can reasonably confidently answer questions unanswerable using traditional methodologies.
