Sorry to everyone who has written to me, but there has been several deaths and illnesses in the family. Let me know if there are still questions I have not answered, my other email server is gone $$$.
The Nicolas Lacour house is a two room house that was originally a single room home. A "kitchen" area was added in the rear after a period of time. Later it was used as a school house.
The LeJeune marker is not near the Lacour home. It is near the old Lacour Plantation Store location in Lacour, LA. The town is now gone, as well as the Store, but the markers remain. It is a pity that both were not preserved by the state. General LeJeune is probably one of the most famous LA Citizens, next to Huey Pierce Long. Lacour, LA, is in the Morganza Spillway just north of Morganza, LA. I forget the exact road, but just north of the spillway (bridge crossing) on US Hwy 1 north of Morganza, there is a road to the right. It is RIGHT OVER THE LEVEE, so slow down. Follow that road to the dead end (at another levee) and take a right. "You can't miss it." Really.
