Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Baton Rouge is the capital and second-largest city of Louisiana.
Baton Rouge is located in the southeast portion of the state along the Mississippi River. It owes its historical importance to its site upon Istrouma Bluff, the first bluff upriver from the Mississippi River Delta, which protects the city?s residents from flooding and other natural disasters.
