Plantation Locations in NE Louisiana

Classification: Query
Can anyone tell me where I can find old plantations located in the Northeastern section of Louisiana during the 1860s (Civil War Time)?

I am particularly interested in one that was located in or near Deerfield/Delhi, Louisiana.

Please reply to aeaster@hotmail.com

I do not know but I am interested in finding out about a plantation in the Baton Rouge area around the same time period that the LeGendre family lived on. Can anyone help?

You might try browsing the message boards for the Mississippi River parishes (counties) in NE Louisiana: East and West Carroll, Madison, Tensas, and Concordia parishes. I've seen plantations mentioned by name in Tensas Parish posts, for instance. Is this what you mean? However, modern-day Delhi is in Richland Parish, west of Madison.
