The first regional survey in the early 1980s included Baton Rouge, but relatively little attention was paid to it. Scientists have often focused on what is special in the region, and much has been found in this approach. With the Baton Rouge Folklife Survey I have drawn up a wider net and found a lot. Two of my essays were first published in Louisiana Folklore Miscellany and nearly twenty years later Jocelyn Donlon wrote "Spanish Town Mardi Gras Parades" for the Louisiana Voices Folk Life Education Project.
In the 19th century, the city became a hub for steamship trade and transport, and its population grew steadily. Baton Rouge was incorporated two years later, in 1817, and became the capital of Louisiana State in 1849. The Civil War led Louisiana to join the South and Union forces captured it in 1862. After the war, the seat of government was moved to three other cities and moved to Shreveport, but returned to BATON ROUGE and was again named the capital of Louisiana in 1882. During the Civil War, the population of the town grew steadily and it became the centre of steamship trade and transport during and after the 1860s.
In the 1920s, Standard Oil and Exxon moved their refineries to the banks of the Mississippi, becoming the major employers in Baton Rouge.
Almost overnight, Baton Rouge not only became Louisiana's largest city, but also doubled its population from about 250,000 to more than 500,000.

Today, the region has a population of about 2.2 million, or about 3.7 percent of the state's total population.
The people documented reflect the myriad groups that make up Baton Rouge, some of whom have lived here for generations.
