Excerpt from History and Civil Government of Louisiana
This volume, it will be seen, embraces a sketch of the history of Louisiana, a detailed description of its present government, and a briefer but fairly comprehensive description of the Federal government. It is believed that in the public and the private schools of this State there is need of such a work. It is true that Civics is now taught in some of our high schools; but no work has been previously published with so full an account of the present composition and working of the town, city, parish, and central departments of the government of Louisiana.
This portion of the book is based upon the recent constitution (1898) and upon the most important acts of the General Assembly that are now in force. It is hoped that this portion of the work will prove of special interest and value not only to youthful students, but also to many adult readers.
Most of our manuals on Civics give much space to the description of the functions of the general government; but when they come to the subject of State governments, which interests and touches the average citizen in nearly all the affairs of his daily life, they offer only such a general description as applies to all the States. From such books, therefore, the Louisianian or the Mississippian cannot derive the information that in the discharge of his duties as a citizen he so often needs.
