The Beginnings of LA Plantations
Plantation agriculture in Louisiana dates to the early 1700s when the territory was a French colony. After abortive attempts to populate the colony by emptying France's prisons and slums into Louisiana, large tracts were offered to men who would bring in tenants to work the land. But only those who were able to get enough slaves succeeded. By the end of the 1790s, the invention of the cotton gin and the discovery of a way to granulate sugar from Louisiana's sugar cane firmly established the system of cultivating a single crop on large estates as a means to riches and power.
Pre-Civil War Period
At the end of the 1830s, cotton was the big cash crop in northern Louisiana, with more than 2 million acres in production. In southern Louisiana's rich, black soil along the banks of bayous and the Mississippi River, cane ruled over 250,000 acres. By the Civil War, Louisiana had about 1,600 plantations large enough to have at least 50 slaves working on each. These plantations covered more than 40 percent of the land fit for farming. Plantations represented a sizable investment and an equally sizable return. In the 1850s, for example, sugar cane fields were worth as much as $100 an acre, while swamp land on the same estate was valued at $10 an acre. A sugar plantation might easily represent an investment of more than $200,000, including slaves and equipment. But the rate of return was a handsome 9 percent. The investment in a cotton plantation was cheaper because less skilled labor and fewer special tools were needed. A 1,500-acre cotton plantation would represent a total investment of about $100,000, and yield a 7 percent profit
