The most interesting period in the history of New Orleans is thatincluded in the first four decades of the nineteenth century. During theseyears, the city emerged from the status of a small town which, for nearly acentury, had been neglected by both France and Spain. Subjected to the whims offoreign masters, a pawn of the politics of a war-torn Europe, New Orleansbefore the Purchase although the capital of a vast empire, was never much morethan a village. But when it became a part of the United States, New Orleanssoon grew into a metropolis that attracted the attention not only of theNation, but of the world.Recalling "Political Squabbles," "The Cholera Epidemic of 1832,"and "Amusements-Refined and Vulgar," the author's detailed accounts arecomplemented by a chronological table and lists of both the governors ofLouisiana and the mayors of New Orleans. New Orleans: The Glamour Period,1800-1840 presents the Crescent City in an accurate, archival light asit places it in the more genteel time preceding the Civil War.Recalling "Political Squabbles," "The Cholera Epidemic of 1832,"and "Amusements-Refined and Vulgar," the author's detailed accounts arecomplemented by a chronological table and lists of both the governors ofLouisiana and the mayors of New Orleans.
