Tomb of the Unknown Slave

Road Trip: Tomb of the Unknown Slave (Louisiana)

  It is unsurprising to find such a monument in New Orleans; not because it was home to slavery, because this no more true than any of the other southern states. It is because New Orleans probably had one of the most unique relationships with slavery.  Yes, it had slavery in exactly the way one might expect; […]
