Weekly Log, 9-7 to 9-10-10

OK! I’m up to over 1,000 words now (plus a great deal of footnotes). I’ve covered the french period and next I’ll handle the Spanish takeover, the rebellion of 1768, the Acadian migration, and the American revolution. After that it’ll be the fire of 1788, the founding of the faubourg Ste Marie, the Carondelet years, and the birth of LA sugar. I should finish up with the Spanish period by Tuesday the 14th, then start on the Treaty of San Ildefonso and the events leading up to the Louisiana purchase, and have that covered by Friday the 17th.
