Northwestern State University history faculty Dr. James MacDonald and Dr. Charles Pellegrin presented papers at the annual Gulf South Historical Conference in Pensacola, Fla. MacDonald and Pellegrin participated in a panel, “The Complexities of Louisiana Politics in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries,” along with Dr. Sam Hyde of Southeastern Louisiana University and panel chair Dr. William Belko of the University of West Florida. MacDonald’s paper chronicled the 1828 trip Andrew Jackson made to New Orleans to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans. Pellegrin’s paper continued to develop his ongoing research on Kent and Phoebe Courtney. Kent Courtney was a conservative radio talk show host. Phoebe Courtney’s family had an extensive history in New Orleans. MacDonald and Pellegrin received support from the NSU Foundation. From left are MacDonald and Pellegrin.
