Randall's ancestors arrived in Louisiana as refugees from the United States of America. They were Loyalists who fled South Carolina in the 1780s after it became obvious that the anti-British rebels were going to succeed in seceding. Louisiana, which was Spanish at the time, provided a safe-haven for Randall's forebears. Around 1800, Louisiana became French (again), but that didn't really bother Randall's ancestors. They were still safely in a foreign country. However, the Louisiana Purchase of 1803 brought them back into the jurisidiction of the USA. Everything turned out okay, though. Now, Randall writes this blog.
