About Mer Rouge,LA

On February 3, 1865, near the end of the American Civil War, two squadrons of the Illinois [cavalry attacked Mer Rouge and, according to the historian John D. Winters seized some horses, mules, while also freeing some enslaved African-Americans. They then "burned about 300,000 bushels of corn [and] some cotton" thus undermining the production power of the pro-slavery rebels. In August 1922, in a case that would attract national attention, members of the Ku Klux Klan abducted two white men—Filmore Watt Daniel and Thomas Fletcher Richard—in Mer Rouge. After torturing and killing the men, the Klansmen disposed of their bodies in nearby Lake Lafourche.
