Editor of rare, uncensored account of French colonial New Orleans
to present at two locations in June
Historian to discuss The Historic New Orleans Collection's latest publication

May 2013 | New Orleans, LA - Historian Erin M. Greenwald will discuss and sign copies of The Historic New Orleans Collection's latest publication, "A Company Man: The Remarkable French-Atlantic Voyage of a Clerk for the Company of the Indies," at two locations in New Orleans during the month of June. The latest book from the independent publisher presents the fascinating, uncensored travelogue of Marc-Antoine Caillot, a Frenchman who ventured to the Gulf Coast in 1729 at the age of 21.

With insight and humor, Caillot recounts episodes major and minor-from New Orleans's earliest recorded Carnival celebration to the Natchez massacre to his own string of pranks and romantic escapades. Greenwald spent several years investigating the original document, embarking on her own journey to nine archives in France, several in the United States and deep into THNOC's own holdings to trace Caillot's life, his manuscript and even portions of his journey.

The original document-which Caillot illustrated with his own watercolors of ship scenes, fish and maps-is one of the most significant finds in French colonial history in well over a century and is now part of THNOC's permanent holdings. The book, which retails for $40, will be available for purchase at each event and is also available at The Shop at The Collection. See below for event details.
