Money

    When the Acadians arrived in south Louisiana in the 18th century, they found their French money of little use.  Common currency at that time in Louisiana was the Spanish reale or cob.  They often bartered for what they needed.  
    With the purchase of Louisiana by the United States, American money was used.
