Kansas - Mississipi - Lousiana

The fascination of the history of the confederation and the consequence it would have had on the life of the American people today has led me in February 2012 to discover the deep South in Mississipi. In Mississipi, I visited the city of Jackson and the State Captitol, the city of Vicksburg where the confederate troops were defeated and the city of Port Gibson. It was also an opportunity for me to visit the State of Lousiana with its rich French heritage, especially New Orleans and Baton Rouge where a friend of mine, Fr Joachin, is buried since 2011. I thank Fr Faustin (1st on the picture, Port Gibson) and Fr Michael (2nd on the picture, New Orleans) for their fraternal hospitality. That visit was preceded by a trip I did in August 2011 in Kansas at the occasion of the convention of the Fraternity "Jesus Caritas", a priestly movement to which I belong. Here are some of the picures taken that time.
