Bayou Bartholomew/Arkansas History Online PD!

Originating near Pine Bluff, Bayou Bartholomew has the unique distinction of being the longest bayou in the world. It stretches 359 miles before emptying into the Ouachita River near Sterlington, LA. Bayou Bartholomew is not only a wonder of nature, but also a national treasure. It's one of the most diverse streams in North America, containing 117 species of fish and 197 species of birds.

This course explains the history of the bayou dating back 3,000 years and also reveals how it has been overlooked for its contribution in developing the heart of the Delta. The videos offer interviews of people who have lived all their lives along the bayou, in both Arkansas and Louisiana, sharing their stories dating back to the steamboat era.
