Abstract/Description: In 1996, Magnolia Plantation in Natchitoches Parish Louisiana was transferred to the National Park Service as part of the Cane River Creole National Historic Park. Between 1996 and 1999, the National Park Service conducted archeological investigations at the plantation's former slave cabins that were constructed circa 1845. Because the cabins were occupied from before the Civil War to the 1970s, they present a unique opportunity to view over 100 years worth of material remains left behind by black freedmen and freedwomen and subsequent generations of black agricultural workers. This study examines their standard of living using both documentary and archeological sources.
