The Bringiers were among Louisiana's most prominent families during most of the 19th century. Though bits and pieces about the family and their many plantations frequently appear in studies on antebellum Loui-siana and the Old South, Creole Genesis: The Bringier Family and Antebellum Plantation Life in Louisiana tells-for the first time-the story of three generations of the Bringiers, from their rise to prominence during the Spanish regime untill their fall after the Civil War.
