Antebellum South


Voyages through the Antebellum South

 

Experience authentic Southern culture as you cruise the Lower Mississippi River. You’ll feel as if time stands still as you explore the culture and history of the area. From the early 1800s until the Civil War, the country’s economy began shifting, and a cotton boom made plantations the center of Southern commerce. With its rich soil, warm climate and ample moisture, the land is among the most fertile in the world, and agriculture flourishes. From New Orleans to Baton Rouge, all along the Great River Road, sugarcane is still grown as it was a century ago.

In the late 1800s, Mark Twain noted that there were so many plantations and dwellings along the river that it looked like a spacious street. Towering homes lay nestled in large patches of moss-draped oak trees, and still today, you can catch a glimpse of what Twain once saw as you journey along on one of our river cruises and tour historic locations and iconic plantation homes.
