1. Bentley Hotel in Alexandria, Louisiana

The Bentley Hotel is a classic hotel located in downtown Alexandria that opened in 1908. It reopened as Mirror Room Lounge on May 1, 2015. This hotel is said to be haunted by several ghosts, including the original builder Joseph Bentley, who passed away on the third floor. They say you can see him wandering around the halls of the building during the day. Visitors to the hotel also claim to hear the voices of Generals Patton and Bradley discussing war strategy in the Mirror Room Lounge. The hotel was featured on an episode of Ghost Hunters in 2011, where they had many strange, unexplainable things happen to them.

Haunted Diamond Grill in Alexandria, Louisiana

2. Diamond Grill in Alexandria, Louisiana

Located at 924 3 rd Street in Downtown Alexandria, this upscale restaurant started as a jewelry store in 1865 by Scottish immigrants in Louisiana. When they decided to turn it into a restaurant in 1931, they wanted to allude to the history of the building. The urban legend of Diamond Grill says that an old jewelry store employee named Stella was unhappy that they changed from being a jewelry store, and she now haunts the restaurant. The restaurant staff have said that glasses fly off shelves, spooky sounds are made in the middle of the night and doors will randomly lock and unlock on their own accord.

3. Alexandria Zoo in Alexandria, Louisiana

Legend has it that former director Leslie “Les” Whitt now haunts Alexandria’s zoo. Les devoted his life to Alexandria and the zoo, pledging to turn the zoo into something special. He passed away of a heart attack 6 days before his 56 th birthday, and visitors claim that he still has unfinished business in the zoo. It’s said that you can hear his voice and spot his spirit moving around in the zoo.

Haunted Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana

4. Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana

You can’t talk about haunted Louisiana places without mentioning what has been named one of the Most Haunted Places in America. Located right in St. Francisville, Louisiana, the Myrtles Plantation houses 12 restless spirits. The most famous of these is named Chloe. In 1992, photographs were taken of the plantation which showed the ghostly figure of a girl standing between the buildings. Another spirit, William Winter, was a lawyer that was shot to death by a stranger in the plantation. He later died on the 17 th step of the stairs, and visitors and employees claim you can still hear his dying footsteps.

Haunted Old State Capitol building in Baton Rouge, Louisiana - Real Haunted Places in Louisiana

5. Old State Capitol Building in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Rumor has it that Pierre Couvillion, a late legislator from Avoyelles Parish, had a heart attack during a debate in the Old State Capitol. He passed away and was buried near his home in Marksville, Louisiana, but people claim that he still occupies the building. Security guards have claimed to have motion detectors go off on their security cameras in a row, as if someone is moving room-to-room. An even creepier event happened in 2009, when paranormal investigators picked up the voice of an entity singing You Are My Sunshine .

6. Pleasant Hall at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Here’s an urban legend that can be backed up by almost any LSU alumni or student. There are two versions of this story revolving around a resident that took her own life in the infamous Room 312. One version says that a girl shot her boyfriend, then decided to take her own life. The other says that the girl jumped from the window of her room. While there aren’t any stories or police reports to back this story up, students swear by it, and many residents at Pleasant Hall claim to feel her presence, see her or have seen the door to Room 312 open and close on its own.

7. USS Kidd in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

The USS Kidd is a WWII and Korean War ship that’s open to the public for touring. This naval destroyer has a rich history, but most people will tell you about the kamikaze attack that killed 38 sailors and wounded 55 others on April 11, 1945. The USS Kidd was reclaimed after the attack and is now docked in the Mississippi River in Baton Rouge as a naval war memorial for those that died. Visitors claim to see the spirits of the fallen uniformed sailors throughout the ship, ghostly arms and legs with nobody attached to them and voices from sailors in the sleeping quarters.

8. The Logan Mansion in Shreveport, Louisiana

This Victorian-style house was built in 1897 for a beer distributor named Lafayette R. Logan. Local legend said that 11-year-old Theodora Hunt leapt to her death from the front window of the attic in 1904, only seven years after it was built. The current owners, Vicki and Billy LeBrun, now keep a log of all the creepy things that happen in the house, like items that move from their spots, a door that locks and unlocks itself and the giggles of a young girl in the attic. There have even been sightings of ghosts in the attic window, right where the little girl fell to her death.

Haunted Oakland Cemetery in Shreveport, Louisiana

9. Oakland Cemetery in Shreveport, Louisiana

Cemeteries already have creepy reputations, but Oakland Cemetery at the intersection of Milam Street and Grand Avenue takes the cake. The cemetery’s celebrity spirit, Nathan Goldkind, is said to haunt the area around his grave. He was buried at Oakland after being murdered for cheating during a poker match by Gus Logan. Locals say his spirit won’t rest due to his killer being pardoned from death row. He has a penchant for the ladies, and many women on the tour claim to have their hair played with when they pass his grave on the ghost tours!

10. Ellerbe Road School in Shreveport, Louisiana

Shreveport is apparently a hotbed for haunted locations. One of the creepiest sites is the old George Washington Carver School, also known as Ellerbe Road School. It opened back in 1957, but closed their doors in 1973 due to low attendance. An urban legend in Shreveport says that one of the janitors used to torment the kids until he disappeared, and now their spirits haunt the building.

11. Old E A Conway Memorial Hospital in Monroe, Louisiana

The Old E A Conway Memorial Hospital (not to be confused with the new hospital of the same name) was built in 1941 and originally named Monroe Charity Hospital, but was renamed to honor the Louisiana Secretary of State E.A. Conway in 1948. The hospital served the city of Monroe for years until it was abandoned in 1987. This creepy, run-down building is said to be home to the spirits of the patients they lost at the hospital. Avid ghost hunters in Louisiana regularly visit the site, with some claiming to see patients walking the halls, hearing doors slam closed and old, rusted hospital beds creak as if they were being moved.

Haunted Chretien Point Plantation in Louisiana

12. Chretien Point in Sunset, Louisiana

While this plantation is now a gated private residence, lovers of the paranormal still talk about and attempt to visit its haunted grounds. During the Civil War, two battles were fought near the plantation: the Battle of Buzzard’s Prairie in October of 1863 and the Battle of Bayou Bourbeaux in November of the same year. There were hundreds of deaths during these two battles, and visitors claim to smell sulfur from the gunshots and see the spirits of the fallen Union and Confederate soldiers on the plantation grounds to this day.

13.  Bonnie and Clyde’s Last Stop in Gibsland, Louisiana

About halfway between Monroe and Shreveport sits the small town of Gibsland, Louisiana in Bienville Parish. The infamous couple Bonnie and Clyde died here on May 23, 1934, when police from Louisiana and Texas cornered them in their stolen car, killing them both by firing more than 100 bullets at their car. Visitors and residents claim that if you go to the site of their death, located on Route 154 about seven miles south of the Ambush Museum , the ghosts of Bonnie and Clyde make themselves well-known. They say you can spot their ghosts lingering in the woods and ghostly apparitions will appear in photographs taken in the area.

Haunted Alice the Witch’s Grave in Zachary, Louisiana

Manhein, M. H. (1999). The bone lady: Life as a forensic anthropologist. Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press.

14. Alice the Witch’s Grave in Zachary, Louisiana

In the outskirts of Zachary, Louisiana is a small cemetery with only one above-ground grave. This grave holds the remains of a woman named Alice, who many people claim to be a witch. The eerie story came to life in the 1950s and 1960s, when the large stone grave’s marble slab covering was removed on three separate occasions, and her remains were removed and left outside of the grave. Large, heavy iron bars were placed on the grave to “hold her spirit in,” but were removed, leaving her remains outside the grave yet again. Locals claim you can see her walk around the cemetery at night, and you can hear her voice calling for her loved ones.

15.  Miller (Headless) Cemetery in Eunice, Louisiana

While the official name for this cemetery is Miller Cemetery, locals call it “Headless Cemetery” due to its resident ghost that roams around the graves. Residents claim that you can see the ghost of a headless man wandering around the cemetery at night. It’s said that the ghost haunts the place because nobody remembers his face due to the unrecognizable picture on his tombstone. As if a headless ghost wasn’t enough, there are many reports of cars suddenly dying or having issues right on the gravel road by the cemetery.

16. Calcasieu Courthouse in Lake Charles, Louisiana

The Calcasieu Courthouse in Lake Charles is more than just a courtroom; local legend says that it’s home to a restless spirit by the name of Toni Jo. Born Annie Beatrice McQuiston, Toni Jo, known in town as “The Tigress,” was the first female in Louisiana to be executed in the electric chair.

As a child, she grew up in a rough household and began going down a bad path in life. She was arrested multiple times, including one incident where she cut a man’s ear off with scissors, and her final arrest was for shooting and killing a used car salesman. Residents and employees at the courthouse say she haunts the courthouse to this day. Many of them claim that you can still smell her perfume or her burning hair in the halls and hear her slow footsteps echo from her “death march.”

17.  Opelousas Museum and Interpretive Center in Opelousas, Louisiana

This building houses some great historical relics, including the barber chair where the infamous Clyde Barrow got his last haircut, but it wasn’t always home to history. It used to be a funeral home. Rumors have it that spirits now haunt the museum, and eerie things have been experienced there by visitors and employees. Doors open and close on their own, the smell of old perfume fills the air when nobody’s there and antique dolls will move around in the display cases on their own.

18. T’Frere’s House in Lafayette, Louisiana

T’Frere’s House used to be a plantation and is now a bed and breakfast, and it has plenty of scary ghost sightings reported during its history. The legend of T’Frere’s House is that a woman named Amelie Comeaux jumped into a well on the property after losing her husband and child to yellow fever, and afterwards she was buried on the property.

An exterminator for the building claims to have seen the ghost of a girl in the attic asking him to “veins voir,” which is French for “come see.” The original owner of the bed and breakfast removed the piano that used to be in the house, claiming that the music woke guests up in the middle of the night—even though nobody was playing it.

19. St. Louis Cemetery Number 1 in New Orleans, Louisiana

It wouldn’t be a haunted places list without mentioning St. Louis Cemetery in New Orleans. If you walk among the dead and view the crypts, you’ll eventually come across plot 347. Xs are written all over the tomb, and trinkets and gifts are laid out for all to see. This is where Marie Laveau, Louisiana’s Voodoo Queen , is laid to rest. According to people from around the world who come to visit her grave, she isn’t doing much resting. She is said to still haunt the cemetery, and if your offering to her is good enough, she’ll even grant wishes for you.

Have you visited any of these haunted places or have one to add to the list? Let us know in the comments!

LOUISIANA'S ULTIMATE HAUNTED HOUSE

"One of America's Scariest Halloween Attractions"

The Travel Channel

" Ranked #1 Top 13 Haunted Houses Across America" (2009)

AOL Cityguide

"13th Gate haunted house is rated once again as the best haunted house in America two years running..." (2009)

Hauntworld.com

"The 13th Gate in Baton Rouge is America's Scariest Haunted House !"

"one of the craziest, scariest, most extreme haunted attractions in america".

Widely regarded as one of the top haunted houses in the Country, The 13th Gate, located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is the Ultimate Haunted House. Journey through 13 nightmarish realms where your worst fears come true and anything can happen.

The 13th Gate is a haunted attraction that is known for its extreme ultra-realism and is one of the most detailed haunted houses in existence. The artists behind the massive dark attraction are experts at blurring the lines between horror and reality, and guests frequently wonder between screams whether what they are experiencing is real or not. The attraction’s level of detail, set design, and effects combined with their impressive actors and incredible makeup effects can only be compared to a Hollywood movie. The attraction features a life-like pirate ship, hidden subterranean passages filled with live snakes, and even an outdoor, zombie-infested graveyard, all seamlessly woven together and nothing short of masterful. The haunted house is constantly changing and growing from year to year so guests never know what to expect around the next terrifying corner.

From exploring an old, abandoned asylum, to being lost in dark underground tunnels or even finding yourself standing on a rickety bridge overlooking hundreds of live snakes, this 40,000 square foot haunted house is definitely not recommended for the faint of heart (nor is it recommended for anyone who is pregnant, has a pre-existing heart condition, is very young, or has a weak bladder)!

The 13th Gate has consistently been recognized as one of the Top Haunted Attractions in the country by Hauntworld.com, MTV, AOL Cityguide, Yahoo Travel, E! Online, USA Today, Fangoria Magazine, Haunted Attraction Magazine, The Travel Channel and many others.

The 10 Most Haunted Spots In Louisiana

Louisiana is a beautiful place that is also home to many haunted places. We've got the best spots to visit if you want to get into the spooky spirit.

Louisiana is a great state to visit if you want to find some haunted places. It's the home of legends like the Voodoo priestess Marie Laveau and the Axeman of New Orleans. The swamplands tell stories of old plantations, murders, and miserable souls.

Related: The 10 Most Haunted Spots In Colorado

There are certainly more than 10 haunted locations to see in Louisiana, so think of this list as simply a sample. Some of these locations have books written about them and others have even appeared on paranormal investigation TV shows and podcasts. Here are 10 haunted spots in Louisiana.

10 St. Louis Cemetery No. 1

This cemetery is like a city for the dead and attracts thousands of visitors every year. It's an old but still active gravesite. In fact, for the small price of $40,000, you can be buried here too! Nicolas Cage is doing it!

Many visitors come to make offers to the Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau who is buried in the cemetery. Many travel sites say a trip to New Orleans is not complete without visiting St. Louis Cemetery No. 1. It's a section that is not publicly open though and can only be seen through guided tours.

9 The Hanging Jail

While its name is the Beauregard Parish Jail, most call it the Hanging Jail or Gothic Jail. It became known as the Hanging Jail because two prisoners were hung for the murder of a taxi cab driver.

The jail was built in 1914 and the hanging happened on the 3rd floor in 1928. The jail has been plenty discussed by paranormal investigators and has even been on The Travel Channel and is going to be in an upcoming Netflix film.

8 The Mortuary

This haunted location really likes to own up to its case for more tourism, especially around Halloween. So they very much welcome visitors! They even do year-round escape rooms. If you want a haunted location that is more off the grid, then maybe skip this place.

Related: The 10 Most Haunted Spots In Oregon

It was originally a mansion built in 1872 and was a mortuary for about 80 years. For those that are not aware, a mortuary is where dead people are prepped for burial and funerals.

7 Myrtles Plantation

Myrtles Plantation likes to boast that it's one of America's most haunted homes, and they may be right. They are famous for the ghost of a slave girl named Chloe, who was photographed in 1992.

There are other paranormal photographs taken at this location of ghosts that are widely researched by National Geographic Explorer and the Society of Psychical Research in England (which is the world's most prestigious and oldest paranormal research group).

6 Shreveport Municipal Auditorium

Constructed in the 1920s, this auditorium became famous thanks to Elvis and other famous artists using it as the location for professional concerts. However, the place has been reported to have a dark side.

Related: The 10 Most Haunted Spots In Florida

Those who have been giving historic tours have reported hearing strange voices, doors opening and shutting on their own, and ghost sightings. It is also worth noting that this was a structure that commemorated those that lost their lives during World War I.

5 Dauphine Orleans Hotel

Don't let the beauty of this hotel fool you, it's been around since the late 1700s and has seen a lot of history. According to the hotel's website, they're not surprised that the hotel may be haunted since that is nothing new to the old buildings of the French Quarter of New Orleans.

RELATED: The 8 Most Terrifying Ghost Tours You Can Do In The USA (According To Reddit)

Sightings have included Civil War soldiers and well dressed women. One spirit often seen is a Creole soldier who wanders in military uniform and another is a woman who dances in the courtyard.

4 Loyd Hall Plantation

A crazy fact about this haunted plantation is that is was recently put up for sale last year. We know that many people dream of one day owning their own haunted house! Before it was put up for sale, it was used as a bed and breakfast.

Ghosts that appear on this location include a Union soldier named Harry. He hide in the home after deserting and was shot there. Apparently his bloodstains can still be seen in the attic. There is also Ines Loyd who jumped out of the second-floor room. Also, there is Sally Boston, a former slave who mysteriously died.

3 LaLaurie Mansion

If you are a fan of American Horror Story , then you're probably already familiar with the story behind this mansion. It was where slaves were tortured by Delphine LaLaurie. Seven slaves were found starved, chained, and tortured in this woman's attic after a fire devastated the mansion. LaLaurie's name lives on as a monster and her mansion still stands.

Related: The 10 Most Haunted Spots In California

Historians believe the story has gotten more exaggerated with time, which makes sense. For 200 years, there have been reports of paranormal activity at the mansion and many believe the building is cursed.

2 Magnolia Plantation

Built in 1832, this place was a huge producer of cotton and had many slaves. As you can imagine, the Civil War and the Reconstruction period changed the place a ton. The main house was burned down by federal troops in 1864 and was only rebuilt about 30 years later.

RELATED: The 10 Scariest Ghost Tours In Europe

It's believed that the slaves had a silent rebellion through their voodoo beliefs here. For example, the blacksmiths hid voodoo symbols in the Christian crosses that they made.

1 Calcasieu Courthouse

This courthouse is famous for one case in particular: a woman who was the first to ever be executed by an electric chair in Louisiana. Her name was Toni Jo Henry and she murdered a man in the 1940s.

Some of those that work in the Calcasieu Courthouse believe that Toni Jo's spirit never left and that she wanders around locking doors, messing with the filing system, and whispering to night guards. If you're in Louisiana, you definitely want to add this haunted spot to your list of places to visit.

The 8 Most Haunted Places in Louisiana

Louisiana is a state known for Mardi Gras and New Orleans, one of the most haunted cities in America . It is also known as being home to many voodoo practitioners, the French Quarter, plantations, brilliant architecture, swamps and more. Louisiana is also a hotbed of paranormal activity.

Here is a list of the most haunted places in Louisiana!

1. St. Louis Cemetery No.1, New Orleans

The Tomb of Marie Laveau, New Orleans, LA

High on the list of the most haunted places in New Orleans is the tomb of Marie Laveau. Marie was a famous Voodoo practitioner in New Orleans. She is considered to be a New Orlean’s voodoo queen. When she perished she was buried in her family’s tomb.

It is believed that if you visit her tomb and place an X on it, turn three times, knock on the tomb, and state your wish, Marie Laveau will grant you a wish from the other side. If your wish is granted you are to return to the tomb and not only circle your X but also leave her a gift.

2. Lafitte Guest House, New Orleans

Lafitte Guest House in New Orleans, LA

Long before a home was built on the property where the Lafitte Guest House now sits there was a charity hospital. Over the years a simple home was built on the property after the hospital burned down.

Later on, in 1848, the simple home was replaced by a mansion built by Paul Gleise. Many families have lived in the 3-story home since that time.

There are a few stories of hauntings that people continue to share. The saddest paranormal activity that people experience is the sounds of a crying infant.

At one point in the hotel’s history, a little girl named Marie contracted yellow fever. Unfortunately, little Marie never recovered and perished in room 21. People who have stayed in that room say you can see her image in the mirror in that room.

Other people have said Marie appears and attempts to speak with children visiting the hotel. Another haunting people experience is the sound of Marie’s mother sobbing in the same room Marie perished.

Marie’s mother has also been known to turn lights off and on and wander around the grounds of the hotel. [ CHECK AVAILABILITY ]

The buildings served as both personal and commercial structures. At one point the Hotel was the French Market Ice Company while at others it served as a private residence with slave quarters.

Prior to the construction of building 300, a medicinal herb garden was planted in the area. All the buildings served many purposes, including as a Confederate hospital.

Visitors and staff members of the Hotel Provincial have experienced a variety of ghostly encounters. People have seen pools of blood appear and disappear on different floors of the hotel.

Others have experienced blood stains on linens appearing then disappearing in certain rooms of the hotel. The appearance of injured and bloody soldiers is a common occurrence.

6. Magnolia Plantation, Derry

The Magnolia Plantation in Natchitoches, Louisiana

Magnolia Plantation’s origins date back to the 18 th century. Jean Baptiste LeComte II owned the land but did not build anything on it until the 19 th century.

The plantation, which operated in 1830, underwent considerable changes once Ambrose, Jean Baptiste’s son, married Julia Buard. In total, the plantation had 21 main buildings erected on the property as well as brick cabins and eight additional quarters.

Countless people have lived in the buildings as both tenant farmers and plantation laborers.

Stories of people experiencing unusual occurrences or seeing things are not unusual. There are those that say the ghosts of former slaves who lived and worked on the plantation are present.

One room on the plantation is believed to be the room where residents went to die. It is now called “The Dying Room.”

Another room is believed to be where prisoners poisoned and drove a Union General crazy. People state they can see the distorted face of a man in the window of that room.

7. Old Louisiana State Capitol, Baton Rouge

The Old Louisiana State Capitol Building in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

When it was decided that Baton Rouge needed a building for the Louisiana Legislature James Darkin came up with the concept for the Old Louisiana State Capitol.

The building served as a seat for the government until the Civil War when the legislators left and the State Capitol became a prison.

Later Union troops used it as a garrison. When they left it was nothing more than a shell of its former glory. It has since been restored and serves as a museum.

Paranormal activity has been experienced by visitors to the Old Louisiana State Capitol and people employed at the building.

Some say they feel as though they are being watched or hear footsteps in empty hallways. Doors opening and closing on their own is something else that people have witnessed.

The ghost of a little girl named Sara Morgan has also been seen on the grounds and property. She was apparently the daughter of the family who donated the property and lived during the time of the Civil War.

According to reports, she was witness to the Capitol building being built, burned down then rebuilt.

8. The Myrtles Plantation, St. Francisville

The Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana

Arguably the most haunted hotel in Louisiana , The Myrtles Plantation was built back in 1796 for General David “Whiskey Dave” Bradford. Bradford originally called the plantation, Laurel Grove. Bradford lived on the plantation by himself until his wife, Elizabeth, moved from Pennsylvania with the rest of the family to join him.

Over the years the plantation has changed ownership multiple times. Bradford’s daughter, Sara Mathilda, and her husband, Clark Woodruff, took control of the plantation in 1808 following her father’s passing.

They maintained ownership until 1851 when Ruffin Gray Stirling and his wife purchased the plantation. They did extensive remodeling to the plantation almost doubling the original size. The plantation changed hands many times following Stirling’s death in 1854.

If you visit the Myrtles Plantation today you will be visiting what is considered to be one of the most haunted plantations in the entire United States.

Currently, the Myrtles Plantation is a bed and breakfast that is as well known for its incredible service as it is for its paranormal activity.

Visitors and tourists visit the location to have the opportunity to stay on the property or to attend many of the different events people host at the Myrtles Plantation.

With regard to the paranormal activity at Myrtles Plantation, the claims of activity have been so extensive Myrtles has been featured in books, TV shows, and movies.

Countless paranormal investigators have come to the location to investigate the claims made; this includes teams from the SyFy Channel and the TAPS team.

Some of the claims included the sighting of two murdered children and Chloe, a servant who was hung after poisoning a cake Clark Woodruff’s family ate and subsequently died.

The dying footsteps of William Drew Winter, an attorney who lived and was murdered on the plantation, have been heard by staff members and visitors alike. The grand piano is often heard, playing the same song by itself. [ CHECK AVAILABILITY ]

LOUISIANA Louisiana has the best reviewed haunted houses. Louisiana haunted houses are scattered throughout the state including New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Monroe.  New Orleans haunted house will have you ravaged by the undead bodies in The Mortuary Haunt House . Marie Leveau entices you to enter The 13th Gate and Necropolis 13 in Baton Rouge. The shear terror of descending 13 steps into an open grave.   The Mortuary Haunt House and The 13th Gat e named one of the “31 Must See Haunts in America in 2013” by Haunted Attraction Magazine.  Louisiana’s Haunted House is well worth the trip to experience some of the scariest attractions.   Evil Visions Haunted House walk with demented souls looking to devour your soul in Monroe.

Louisiana, an antebellum state, was previously known as the Territory of Orleans. Louisiana’s history is long and full of the trials and tribulations of the massive influx of immigrants. Because of its rich land and ports, Louisiana has seen its influx of French, Spanish, American Indian, Caribbean, Africans, Germans, and the English. During the time of slavery, it held the largest percentage population of slaves; at almost 50% this number is repugnant. However, it also held the highest free black number too. Although Louisiana was a southern state and belonged to the Confederacy, it was taken in battles by the Union forces quickly. The large port city of Orleans held many free slaves and they wanted all states to be free. The most violent and brutal battles were fought up the Mississippi River. These were the most gruesome of battles, outside the city limits were still the Confederates fighting for their cause.

Carefully, the Union soldiers reviewed the lay of the land and waterways. The decided to travel in what is now called the Red River Campaign. The soldiers took over the river waters in a multitude of bloody and violent battles. These battles were fought over the course of days, yet thousands lost their lives. The Union soldiers came from every angle, there was no place for the Confederates to run, only fight until death for their beliefs. The water ran deep with the blood of the dead, and the suffering ran deeper. These battles left many injured, disfigured, dismembered or worst yet, dead. Many others died of starvation, dysentery, or an epidemic of sickness. War was a purgatory within itself, for the hand to hand combat and seeing death in the eyes of the opponent burned deep into heart. These dead souls which do not know they should have passed over, wander aimlessly. Souls lost between life and death, left wandering the land or worse yet, angered by loss and seek revenge. Fortunately, these souls are gathered and kept restrained until their energy and anger release them from their bondage to let them roam free during the harvest months of the fall. Wounded, dismembered, infected, cold and hungry have left these souls in purgatory to forever complete their mission. These missions led by the most evil of sources, from the fires of hell below. Souls have converged in the many haunted houses, haunted hayrides, haunted mazes, ghost tours, paranormal activity, attractions and more. Attracted by Halloween, they converge in the portals that are opened during Halloween. The intense energy they expel helps the living keep them at bay for the remainder of the year. Unfortunately, they must return and do their bidding as part of their mission in purgatory. Louisiana is a portal to the depths of the under-world.

Demons and messengers of the under-lord return to experiment on the living.

Will you feel their wrath?

Proposed Louisiana Congressional Map, With Second Majority-Black District, Advances

A proposed Louisiana congressional map with a second majority-Black district, which could deliver another U.S. House seat to Democrats, advanced through a legislative committee Tuesday afternoon — despite push back from congressmen

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A proposed Louisiana congressional map with a second majority-Black district, which could deliver another U.S. House seat to Democrats, received bipartisan support and advanced through a legislative committee Tuesday.

During the second day of Louisiana's special redistricting session, lawmakers took their first in-depth look at proposed congressional boundaries, backed by newly inaugurated GOP Gov. Jeff Landry. Under the proposal, the district currently held by Republican U.S. Rep. Garret Graves would become a majority-Black district.

GOP state Rep. Glen Womack, who filed the legislation , said that race was not the "predominate factor" in deciding where the new boundaries would lie, but rather “politics drove this map" — ensuring that the seats of Louisiana's leadership in congress, U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson and Majority Leader Steve Scalise, would likely be reelected.

Unsurprisingly, Graves was not pleased with the proposed map, sarcastically praising the “imaginative creativity” of the bill, The Advocate reported. Under the current map, in Graves’ district 23% of the voting-age population is Black. With the proposed map, that number would increase to 54%.

Louisiana is among the list of states still wrangling over congressional districts after the U.S. Supreme Court in June ruled that Alabama had violated the Voting Rights Act. The battle over Louisiana’s congressional boundaries has played out in the legislative chambers and in court for more than a year and a half.

Political Cartoons

best haunted house louisiana

The current map — which a federal judge said violates the Voting Right Act by diluting the power of Black voters — has white majorities in five of six congressional districts despite Black people accounting for one-third of Louisiana’s population.

Currently the only majority-Black district, which encompasses most of New Orleans and stretches to Baton Rouge, is held by U.S. Rep. Troy Carter, the state’s sole Black and Democratic member of Congress.

Louisiana residents braced icy roads Tuesday to travel to Baton Rouge and let lawmakers know how they felt about yet another redistricting session and lack of a second majority-Black district in the currently used map.

“We are sick and tired of going through the same thing over and over again when you have been elected to do a job that you are not doing,” Wilfred Johnson, founder of an organization in Iberia Parish that helps residents exercise their right to vote, said to lawmakers during the Senate and Governmental Affairs committee meeting. “We deserve fair mapping.”

Officials have until Jan. 30 to pass new congressional boundaries with a second majority-minority district. If they do not meet the deadline, a district court will hold a trial and “decide on a plan for the 2024 elections,” according to a November court order by the U.S. Additionally, Baton Rouge-based U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick has signaled she will create a new map if lawmakers don't complete the task.

“For various reasons — known and unknown, spoken and unspoken — closure of this redistricting problem has evaded us,” Gov. Landry said to lawmakers as they gaveled in Monday night. “It is time to stop averting the issue and confront it head on.”

Landry, who as the former attorney general fought for the current map in use, said that at this point all legal remedies have been exhausted. He urged the GOP-dominated Legislature to adopt a new map that would satisfy the court, instead of possibly putting the task in the hands of “some heavy-handed federal judge."

The proposed map is scheduled to be debated on the Senate floor on Wednesday. If it advances out of the Senate, it still needs to be heard, debated and voted on by the House. Lawmakers must adjourn no later than 6 p.m. on Jan. 23.

Harvard's Institute of Politics Announces Spring 2024 Resident and Visiting Fellows

best haunted house louisiana

Introduction

CAMBRIDGE, MA – The Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School today announced the appointment of seven Resident Fellows and one Visiting Fellow who will join the IOP for the Spring 2024 semester. The fellows bring diverse experience in global politics, elected office, legal affairs, and journalism to address the challenges facing our country and world today. 

"We are incredibly excited to welcome this fantastic group of Fellows to Harvard to engage and collaborate with our students and community. We welcome their expertise, their insight, and their guidance as we gear up for a historic presidential campaign," said IOP Director Setti Warren . "I am confident that they will help to inspire our students to pursue careers in public service and prepare the next generation to provide impactful political leadership in the United States and around the world." 

"We are thrilled to have such a remarkable cohort of Fellows to the IOP this spring. They each bring diverse perspectives on how to best approach some of our country's – and our world's – most pressing challenges. Our students will undoubtedly have important conversations and gain valuable insight into an array of critical issues, and we couldn't be more excited to welcome them to Cambridge," said Michael Nutter , Chair of the Institute of Politics Senior Advisory Committee, and former Mayor of Philadelphia. 

"We are thrilled to welcome the incredibly accomplished members of the 2024 Spring Fellows Cohort as we begin the spring semester of an incredibly important year. Dubbed the ' biggest election year in history ,' democracy will be tested in 2024 as countries containing more than half of the world's population go to the polls. Nations globally are currently in the longest period of democratic backsliding on record . This year's elections, in the United States and abroad, will prove pivotal in determining whether reactionary, far-right actors continue to chip away at the rule of law or if the forces of liberalism will persist in upholding individual liberties and democratic norms — a key pillar of the Institute of Politics. These challenges bring with them no shortage of discussion topics, and our incoming cohort of Fellows brings with them decades of collective experience in journalism, policymaking, governing, and diplomacy. We are looking forward to a healthy, active, and productive semester of discussions at the Kennedy School to explore the multitude of challenges facing our world today and to equip students with the knowledge and ideas necessary to create a better tomorrow. The Fellows program remains a critical source of discussion across ideological boundaries, and one that we will work to keep strong in the face of intense polarization," said Éamon ÓCearúil '25 and Summer Tan '26, Co-Chairs of the Fellows and Study Groups Program at the Institute of Politics. 

IOP Resident Fellows are fully engaged with the Harvard community. They reside on campus, mentor a cohort of undergraduate students, hold weekly office hours, and lead an eight-week, not-for-credit study group based on their experience and expertise. Fellows will hold study groups on topics including diplomacy and statecraft, governing in a divided America, national political parties, judiciary affairs, and policy development. 

Visiting Fellows come to the IOP for a shorter stay and participate in a variety of comprehensive discussions, events, and programming.

"I look forward to contributing to the academic environment by sharing my political expertise and experiences. The lectures will include guests who add a political perspective and dialogue to critical topics, both current and future predictions," said Congressman Denham.

John Bel Edwards John Bel Edwards served as the 56th Governor of Louisiana from 2016 until January 2024. In 2008, he was elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives, where he represented the people of Amite, Greensburg, Kentwood, and Hammond for eight years before being elected governor. Edwards attended the United States Military Academy at West Point. As a cadet, he completed Airborne School and served as vice-chairman of the panel that enforces the West Point Honor Code. The governor graduated from West Point in 1988, commissioning as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army. He served on active duty for 8 years, earning Airborne, Ranger, and Jumpmaster status, culminating with command of a rifle company in the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He earned his J.D. from LSU Law Center in 1999.

"I am honored to come to Cambridge this spring and join the IOP as a Visiting Fellow. I look forward to collaborating with the next generation of political leaders, and to working together to share ideas and imagine solutions to some the nation's most pressing challenges," said Governor Edwards.

Josh Gerstein Josh Gerstein (Harvard College ’91) is a senior legal affairs reporter for POLITICO, where he chronicles the increasingly seismic impact of the legal system on American politics and policy. In 2022, Gerstein co-authored POLITICO’s award-winning exclusive on the Supreme Court’s draft opinion overturning the federal constitutional right to abortion established in Roe v. Wade—a groundbreaking story widely credited with ushering in a new era in more aggressive, accountability-focused coverage of the nation’s highest court. Gerstein has taken readers inside some of the most politically-charged trials and legal showdowns of the past several decades, including the four unprecedented criminal cases dogging former President Donald Trump as he tries to return to the White House. After cutting his teeth at the Crimson chasing candidates for the Harvard presidency and the occasional wayward Saudi prince, Gerstein spent the early part of his career working for CNN’s investigative unit, as a national reporter for the New York Sun, and as a White House correspondent and China correspondent for ABC. He also spent almost a full year on the road as an embed for ABC on the 1996 presidential campaign of Sen. Bob Dole and did several tours in Afghanistan after 9/11 reporting for Nightline and other programs.

"As we face our first presidential election poised to play out as much in the courtroom as on the campaign trail, I’m delighted to be joining the IOP to explore and reflect on the implications of this shift and how it is changing the way politicians and other policymakers approach both elections and governing," Gerstein said. "I’m eager to engage with an impressive and diverse group of fellows, along with scholars and students, about the forces behind the legal realm’s growing incursion into the political sphere, as well as the wisdom and practicality of proposals to curb this trend."

William Hurd The Honorable Will Hurd, a San Antonio native with a Computer Science degree from Texas A&M, has been a CIA officer, cybersecurity executive, congressman, artificial intelligence policy pioneer, author, investment banker, and presidential candidate. In his 20s serving overseas with the CIA, he thwarted terror threats. In his 30s, he helped build FusionX to combat cyber adversaries, and in Congress, he addressed critical national issues from AI to the New Cold War with China. In his 40s, as a Managing Director at Allen & Company, a board member of OpenAI, and a trustee of the German Marshall Fund he was at the center of technology, national security, and public policy. As a presidential candidate, he introduced innovative AI and border policies. Known for his love of movies, Tex-Mex, and his wife, Will is celebrated as a transformative leader, dedicated to securing a better future for everyone.

"If we are going to keep this experiment called America succeeding for another 247 years then we need our future leaders to have a thirst for public service. By sharing a different perspective forged from my unique experiences, I hope to show the students at Harvard how to pursue a life of public service and why they should," said Congressman Hurd.

Alison King Alison King is an award-winning journalist with more than 30 years of experience in the broadcasting industry. She spent most of her career covering politics in New England including leading the local, state, and regional political coverage for NBC Boston/NECN from 1995 until her retirement from TV in March 2023. She has covered seven presidential elections and interviewed every Republican and Democratic presidential candidate since 1996. King has also reported and produced three documentaries, including one about the late Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy and former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. Most recently, she executive produced and reported on an 11-part docu-series, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of New Hampshire,” which chronicles the Free State Project and the efforts by libertarians nationwide to settle in New Hampshire to create a libertarian Utopia. King has won several awards for her reporting including from the Emmys, Gracies and Associated Press. She also contributed to the collection of stories that won NECN a Dupont award. King received her Bachelor of Arts in English from Colgate University and a Master of Arts in Journalism from New York University. She and her husband live in Boston and have two children. King will hold a separate, concurrent research fellowship at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at HKS, where she will research and publish on the impact of the collapse of local political news on the conduct of presidential primary campaigns.

"After covering dozens of IOP events over the years and interviewing multiple fellows, I'm thrilled to be joining the IOP as a fellow myself. I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned covering politics for three decades including seven Presidential primaries - especially as the 2024 election is playing out. I’m also excited to interact with and learn from our future leaders - the students," said King.

Grisella M. Martinez Grisella M. Martinez is a respected and trusted leader on Congressional policy and political matters on Capitol Hill and the White House. She most recently served as Director of Legislative Affairs for Vice President Kamala D. Harris in the Biden-Harris Administration. She was the most senior Latina on the Vice President’s team and the first Latina to hold this role for a Democratic Vice President. She has worked in policymaking and politics for over fifteen years. Some of her previous roles include Chief of Staff to Rep. Ruben Gallego (AZ-03); Vice President of Government Relations at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB); and Policy Director for House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra (CA-34). Martinez began her career in immigration law and non-profit advocacy and holds an LL.M. from Washington College of Law at American University, a J.D. from the Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law, and a B.A. in English and Political Science from James Madison University.

"I am honored to be joining the Harvard community as an IOP Fellow and excited to engage with students, faculty and staff during an important time in American democracy and as we head into the 2024 elections. Public service is one of the most rewarding, complex and impactful careers one can have, and I’m looking forward to sharing my unique perspectives and experience with students about politics, policymaking and elections as they consider their own futures and help shape ours," said Martinez.

As Panama's Minister of Foreign Affairs, she achieved notable "first female" milestones for the Latin-American region and received distinctions for her unwavering commitment to empowering women. As Chief Diplomat, she earned recognition by brokering global alliances to protect the largest Pacific marine corridor, contributing to the protection of global biodiversity. During her roles in the private sector, she provided strategic counsel on intricate corporate transactions, including cross-border infrastructure and investment projects in emerging markets.

She is a fellow of the Advance Leadership Initiative of Harvard University.

"In a year where half of the planet’s population will hold elections in a context defined by geopolitical tensions and multiple ongoing crises, it is a unique opportunity to have a frank dialogue on critical drivers of the elections globally and the role of foreign diplomacy," said Mouynes.

About the Institute of Politics Fellows Program

The Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School was established in 1966 as a living memorial to President John F. Kennedy. The Institute’s mission is to unite and engage students, particularly undergraduates, with academics, politicians, activists, and policymakers on a non-partisan basis to inspire them to pursue pathways in politics and public service. The Institute blends the academic with practical politics and offers students the opportunity to engage in current events and to acquire skills and perspectives that will assist in their postgraduate pathways.

The Fellows Program has stood as the cornerstone of the IOP, encouraging student interest in public service and increasing the interaction between the academic and political communities. Through the Fellows Program, the Institute aims to provide students with the opportunity to learn from experienced public servants, the space to engage in civil discourse, and the chance to acquire a more holistic and pragmatic view of our political world.
