    My guess would be that Louisiana has the perfect climate for sugar cane plants as well as
    the presence of the Bayou.I think sugar plants need to grow near water.

    Jesuit priests first brought sugarcane into south Louisiana in 1751, little did they know that the foundation was being laid for an industry that now contributes $2 billion to the Louisiana economy.

    The first successful sugar crop used to produce raw sugar was that of Etienne de Bore. In 1795, de Bore succeeded in making sugar that was valued at $12,000.

    One must remember that Louisiana was French until the early 19th century. They're colonial system was quite different from Spain's in that they planned for long term exploitation. When the US bought Louisiana folks in Washington saw how well the plantation system worked, embraced it, and spread it around. Good question!

    planned term exploitation louisiana folks washington plantation worked embraced spread

    because it had link with the Colonialist these are people who were owner, occupiers and rulers of plantation. In history louisiana is link with colonialist french islands such as guadeloupe and other where plantation of cotton, tobacco, sugar, banana and others was plentiful

    It was actually introduced to the United States very early and grown in other places on a small scale. Louisiana was the first place where it was grown on a larger scale. Florida, where I live, was another state where it was and still is grown.

    I have kids that I home school, and we are actually studying US history.
