Spaniards, planters, and slaves : the Spanish regulation of slavery in Louisiana, 1763-1803 by Gilbert C Din( )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spaniards, Planters, and Slaves is a provocative look at the institution of slavery and how it functioned as a part of Louisiana's culture during the years of Spanish rule. Gilbert C. Din challenges the idea that conditions under the Spaniards differed little from the years of French rule and examines how local culture merged with colonial government and residual laws to create a slave system unlike any other in the Deep South."--Jacket
Francisco Bouligny : a Bourbon soldier in Spanish Louisiana by Gilbert C Din( )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The eventful history of Louisiana during the colonial period has left a legacy that endures to the present day in the culture, politics, and population patterns of the state. Yet Louisiana's colonial history has been too little studied, and few biographies exist to illuminate the personalities and activities of individuals who lived during that time. In Francisco Bouligny: A Bourbon Soldier in Spanish Louisiana, Gilbert C. Din presents a detailed, well-rounded examination of one of Spanish Louisiana's first citizens." "Din draws a lively and informative portrait of an ambition-driven soldier and government official who hoped to find in the colonial arena opportunities for professional, social, and economic advancement. Bouligny, the scion of a provincial Iberian family, arrived in Louisiana in 1769 as a member of Alejandro O'Reilly's expedition to the colony, and he remained there until his death in 1800 - virtually the entire duration of Spanish domination of the region." "In 1776 Jose de Galvez was named Minister of the Indies and appointed his nephew Bernardo de Galvez governor of Louisiana. At the same time Bouligny was named lieutenant governor and was put in charge of settlements, commerce, and Indians. Bouligny founded the settlement of New Iberia, served with distinction in the Spanish campaigns along the Gulf Coast during the American Revolution, and after the war helped crush the murderous San Malo gang of runaway slaves and dealt successfully with a threatened attempt to claim West Florida as United States territory. Despite his accomplishments, Bouligny never achieved all the successes he desired - at least partially, Din asserts, because of the unwillingness of Bernardo de Galvez to promote Bouligny's interests." "Din's study is much more than the story of one individual. It provides valuable information about Spain's takeover of Louisiana from the French, the administration of the colony, Louisiana's involvement in the American Revolution, and the final years of the colony before its purchase by the United States. It also offers extensive insight into the makeup of Louisiana's colonial militia, the military establishment generally, and the colony's economy, politics, and social strata. Based on years of research in archives in Spain and the United States as well as on family papers and secondary materials in several languages, Francisco Bouligny is an important addition to scholarship on colonial Louisiana by one of the field's leading experts."--BOOK JACKET

War on the Gulf Coast : the Spanish fight against William Augustus Bowles by Gilbert C Din( )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'War on the Gulf Coast' is one of the first books about the Spanish period in West Florida (1797-1805) written from the Spanish point of view. Using Spanish archival sources, Gilbert Din is able to shed new light on the machinations of William Augustus Bowles, an adventurer who sought to introduce goods, subvert the Creek Indians, and deprive the Spaniards of territory
The New Orleans Cabildo : colonial Louisiana's first city government, 1769-1803 by Gilbert C Din( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cabildo -- New Orleans' unique Spanish city government -- touched the life of every citizen of the city during its thirty-four years of existence, and its decisions often had an impact on the administration of Louisiana far beyond the confines of New Orleans itself. Moreover, its archival records, with lavish and detailed information about every aspect of life within Spanish New Orleans, are the richest of any city in the Spanish Borderlands. Yet curiously, until now there has been no thorough analysis of this influential institution.In The New Orleans Cabildo, Gilbert C. Din and John E. Harkins have filled that scholarly gap and made a significant contribution to our understanding of the Spanish hegemony in Louisiana. New Orleans, which had been a small, isolated, and insignificant town under the French grew to be a thriving center of trade, communications, and economic activity under Spanish rule. Din and Harkins examine the offices and personnel of the Cabildo and explore its vast responsibilities in the areas of justice, medicine and health, public works, land grants and building regulations, ceremonial and liaison duties, regulation of markets and food prices, and treatment of slaves and free blacks, among others. They also review the difficulties encountered by the Cabildo and the ways it responded to the city's -- and the colony's -- economic, legal, social, and military problems.Through careful and thoughtful utilization of documents from archives in Louisiana and Spain -- particularly minutes from the Cabildo meetings -- Din and Harkins have produced in The New Orleans Cabildo a model history of a complex and all-encompassing institution
The Canary Islanders of Louisiana by Gilbert C Din( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Canary Islanders, or Isleños, of Louisiana, like some of the state's other ethnic groups, have received little scholarly attention. Although they are a people who have remained largely unknown both inside and outside of Louisiana, the Isleños constitute a sizable portion of the state's present Spanish-surname population. Utilizing a wide range of source materials, from Spanish colonial documents to oral interviews, Gilbert C. Din's The Canary Islanders of Louisiana provides the first book-length study of the Isleños and a definitive history of their presence in the state

An extraordinary Atlantic life : Sebastián Nicolás Calvo de la Puerta y O'Farrill, Marqués de Casa-Calvo by Gilbert C Din( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although not widely known in Louisiana, Sebastián Calvo de la Puerta was an interim governor for two years (1799-1801), during an era that most historians have ignored. He came from a Spanish family that settled in Havana in the sixteenth century. It gradually became very wealthy because of sugar, but Sebastián chose a military career and gradually rose to the rank of general. The study reveals Spanish settlement in Cuba, Cuba's importance in the Spanish empire, Spain's economic and military decline, the French invasion of Spain (1808-1813), and Sebastián's last years in Paris. All this is accomplished despite leaving virtually no personal papers or even a picture of himself. The study helps to clarify who this person was and the times in which he lived."--Provided by puglisher
