As a born Louisianian, and having been a baby sitter for Hueys grandchildren,, I found this DVD to be fascinating and factual.

This was Ken Burns first film, which he did for Louisiana Public Broadcasting. Its very colorful, to say the least. Anyone who loves great history, especially Louisiana history should have this film in their collection!!
