Beautiful Crescent: A History of New Orleans by Joan B. Garvey, Mary Lou Widmer

Beautiful Crescent, A History of New Orleans, is a textbook/reference book written by two teachers/historians and self published by their own corporation Garmer Press, Inc. in 1982. It is now in its 12th edition. It traces the lives of those who populated the land that would in time be New Orleans, starting with the Indians and following with the first explorers, then the French, the Spanish, and finally the Americans. It tells of the coming of various ethnic groups to the melting pot of New Orleans and the influence they had on its culture and progress. It touches on the lives of colorful characters such as Iberville, Bienville, Andrew Jackson, Jean Lafitte, Baroness Pontalba and Gen Benjamin Beast Butler, taking the reader from the tiny outpost in the crescent of the river to a city world renown for its food, music, and celebrations..
