ASCENSION PARISH ACCIDENT INJURY ATTORNEY

Ascension Parish (French: Paroisse de l’Ascension) is a parish located in the state of Louisiana. As of the 2013 census, the population was 114,393. The parish seat is Donaldsonville and the parish was created in 1807.

Ascension Parish is part of the Baton Rouge, LA Metropolitan Statistical Area as well as the Baton Rouge–Pierre Part Combined Statistical Area. It is one of the fastest growing parishes in the state.

During the American Civil War, desertions had been of major concern to the Confederacy. Henry Watkins Allen, before he was governor, reported more than eight thousand deserters and draft-dodgers about Bayou Teche. There were some 1,200 deserters in Livingston, St. Tammany, and Ascension parishes. Planters in Ascension Parish later complained of raids by guerrillas. In 1864, planter W.R. Hodges requested soldiers to protect the planted fields from such attacks. Union soldiers were accused of “wandering about at will, and helping themselves . . . to whatever could be found,” explains the historian John D. Winters in his The Civil War in Louisiana (1963).
