In Testimonium...

In Louisiana there is a long history behind the celebration of Mardi Gras (French for "Fat Tuesday" and a reference to the last day before the beginning of Lent). On 3 March 1699 a new fort on the Mississippi River 60 miles south of what is now New Orleans was christened "Point du Mardi Gras" by the French explorer Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville. It was the day before Ash Wednesday. His brother Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne Bienville founded New Orleans in 1718, sixteen years after having established Mobile as the first capital of La Louisiane Fran├žaise. New Orleans became the third capital of French Louisiana after Biloxi, another city founded by the French explorer, held the title for three short years.
