The first people of African descent to touch Louisiana came from Nevis.
In 1706 there was fierce fighting between the French and British . During the fighting, 3,400 enslaved Nevisians were captured and sent off to Martinique, but about 1,000 more, poorly armed and militarily untrained, held the French troops at bay, by "murderous fire" according to an eyewitness account by an English militiaman. He wrote that "the slaves' brave behaviour and defence there shamed what some of their masters did, and they do not shrink to tell us so." After 18 days of fighting, the French were driven off the island. Among the Nevisian men, women and children carried away on d'Iberville's ships, six ended up in Louisiana, the first persons of African descent to arrive there. - Eartha Kitt performing the song ‘Chantez Les Bas’ (Sing ‘Em Low) in “St. Louis Blues” (1958) #wemakeculture

Guess what.......We moved!! It's been a hectic last two weeks so I'm just getting around to sharing this. Long story short, a family who needed to relocate for work found our house through social media and wanted to buy it. However it was not for sale, but we are always up for a new adventure, so we sold it to them. We have been living with my dad for the last 2 weeks and don't even know where most of our clothes are or where we are going next. But we do have a plan!! We are building again!! We have the lot and are hoping to break ground very soon. Our goal is to have it in the Parade of Homes, so it's time to get rolling. I'm so thankful for all the help from family and friends we had during this process. The kids have somewhat adjusted to living out of suitcases but we hope to be in a rental soon. Stay tuned for the all the new exciting details of our future home.
