Natchitoches, Louisiana

WGBH

The French founded Natchitoches, Louisiana's oldest permanent settlement, in 1714. The Cane River National Historic Park, to the south of Natchitoches, is home to restored plantations.

The crew filmed two of the series' most violent scenes at Natchitoches: the assassination attempt against Marshall Twitchell and the ambush at Coushatta.

Almost every shoot we've done, we've been rained on. Mud so thick in Louisiana that it sucked the boot right off your foot, and sucked the grip truck right off the road. --  Elizabeth Deane, series producer
