Baton Rouge, Louisiana
According to Countryaah.com, Baton Rouge is the capital of the state of Louisiana in the southern United States, located by the Mississippi River 116 km northwest of New Orleans. The city has 225,374 residents and forms the core of a larger metropolitan area with 834,159 residents (U.S. Census, 2017).
Baton Rouge is an important railroad hub and river port, and the top port of the Mississippi River that can take seagoing vessels. The city has major oil refineries with extensive petrochemical industry. By the way, the film industry is growing, and the State University of 1869 has a large biomedical research center.
A French fort was built here in 1719, and the area was ruled by France, Britain, Spain, Louisiana, the Republic of West Florida and the Southern Confederation before it came under the United States. Baton Rouge was surrendered to France by the Paris peace in 1763, taken over by Spain during the War of Independence in 1779, and returned to France in 1800. After the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, Spain again claimed the area, which became American during the War of 1812, when Louisiana became a state of its own. The city became the capital of Louisiana in 1849, and experienced strong growth following the construction of the Standard Oil Company oil refinery in 1909.
