I took Louisiana Studies in 8th grade like most folks around my age did. In Junior High School... NOT Middle School! Now I don't want to just give my age away, but I graduated fom high school in 1992 if that helps you any.

Ah yes, Louisiana Studies, an 8th grader's right of passage. That's when I learned that Louisiana has 64 parishes while attending Cope Junior High in Bossier City. We also learned why Louisiana has parishes instead of counties (boundaries were defined by church territories) and about the peculiarities of Napoleonic Law, the Civil Code established by the French emperor in 1804.

So what are some of the fun facts about Louisiana that only someone who took Louisiana Studies might remember? Let's review!
