Digitized Historical Archives of the Supreme Court of Louisiana

These digital archives consist mainly of manuscript case files appealed from lower state courts to the Supreme Court of Louisiana between 1813 and 1878. Digitized circuits include Alexandria; Baton Rouge (1813-1846); Monroe; and New Orleans. Not all cases from each circuit have yet been digitized. (For more information on the physical collection in the library's Department of  Louisiana and Special Collections, which includes cases from 1813 to 1920, see its finding aid.)
