Creole Echoes, Alcée Fortier

I must get this book for the footnotes to its introduction, and for general purposes. I also need Alcée Fortier’s history of Louisiana for what it may say about plaçage.

It seems that the term itself comes from 20th century Haiti and as it was retroactively applied to New Orleans, referred to a different (and possibly, only imagined) custom.

I should have started doing Louisiana research ages ago, I would be famous. It may be why I came back. And here is an amazing resource, and who knows what they may have at the Amistad Center.
