Alder's was commissioned to create the State's commemorative centennial medal 100 years ago and this continuing that traditions today with this updated re-issue of the 1912 design. The bicentennial medal features a high relief the Louisiana state seal on one side and an outline silhouette of the state on the reverse, using a compass rose to indicate orientation"--Louisiana Statehood Bicentennial 1812-2012, Official First Day of Issue Medal 194/300.
"Two hundred years ago, Louisiana was joined to the United States, forever changing both. Our home is unlike any other place in the country, our people unlike any other Americans. And, in the two centuries of history that have unfolded since becoming an American state, we find powerful drama, unforgettable characters and astonishing beauty. Throughout the world, Louisianans are known for their celebratory spirit. And two hundred years of statehood gives us much to celebrate! Join narrator Harry Connick, Jr. in this story of our home, Louisiana"--DVD back cover.
"The music on this CD was produced by The Louisiana Music Hall f Fame under agreement with the Louisiana Bicentennial Commission. The artists included in this compilation have each donated theirs songs and music as a gift to Louisiana's 200th Birthday on April 30, 2012. All profits from sales of this CD go to the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame and the Louisiana Bicentennial Commission, both not-for-profit organizations. Hundreds of artist and their songs were considered from all areas of Louisiana and across all genres of music with an ear to the overall quality of performance and musically before the final track selections were completed and capped at 20 tracks. This CD includes never before released songs and tracks and full digital remasters of all tracks"--CD insert.
"Louisiana has, for two hundred years, risen to the possibilities of the American Dream while retaining the accent of its indigenous, European and African populations. There are many ways to tell the story of Louisiana's two hundred years of statehood, and this book presents a story in objects. These artifacts tell more than one story and we encourage you to explore the other stories behind these tangible pieces or our history. This gathering of objects is in no way intended to be a comprehensive presentation of Louisiana's history, but a tipping point for further investigation and discussion"--Inside book jacket.
