This DBQ focuses on having students analyze why control of Louisiana was so important to it’s colonial holders. This DBQ has 5 sources and 12 questions that allow students to focus on how each source answers the question “Why was control of Louisiana so important?” At the end of this DBQ students will answer a constructed response question using the sources to once again answer why control of Louisiana was so important.
