General Taylor's Residence At Baton Rouge


General Taylor was a resident of Baton Rouge from 1840 to 1848, his home being on [what is now] the LSU campus near the present home of Prof R. L. Himes.  Gen. Taylor was in Baton Rouge when he received the letter telling him of his election to the first office in our land. [Source]
