In the 1980’s Monroe was celebrating it’s bicentennial. Dr. E. Russ Williams, Jr. was asked to put together some pamphlets on the early history of the area. The above is the result of all that hard work.
Then, Dr. Williams decided to expand on the pamphlets and combine them into one book. The “Spanish Post d’Ouachita…”, pictured above, was the result. The last time I heard, the Friends of Ouachita Public Library has copies of the book for sale, but the pamphlets are rare. If you would like to see them, visit your local branch of the Ouachita Parish Public Library!
