The capital of Louisiana is filled with any array of significant historical monuments and markers, each with a unique story to tell. Some, like the old and new capitals and the Louisiana State University Memorial Tower, are well-known, iconic pieces of Baton Rouge. Others, like De Boré's Sugar Kettle and the nation's only remaining Pentagon Barracks outside Washington, D.C., are lesser known yet no less important to the narrative of Baton Rouge. Join Dr. Hilda Krousel on this journey through the history of "Red Stick," as told by its most storied landmarks.
