Standing in the Shadows of the Teche

I visited the Shadows on the Teche shortly after Christmas in New Iberia, Louisiana. The Shadows is a historic antebellum home that is preserved from the Civil War Era. The home was that of sugarcane farmer David Weeks and his wife Mary Weeks. During the Civil War as northern troops occupied (and subsequently burned) properties all across the south the property remained in pristine condition. The Northern soldiers had the utmost respect for Mary Weeks and as a result they did not burn the antebellum home after occupying it throughout the war.

Photowalk tomorrow in Chicago – 4 PM – the weather looks like it will be cold but dry so should be a good time (and of course beers afterwards).
