Bossier Parish

Bossier Parish was carved out of the Great Natchitoches District on February 24, 1843. It was named after General Pierre Everiste John Baptiste Bossier, descendant of an early settler and a member of Congress when the parish was formed. Fort Kirby Smith was one of four forts and eighteen batteries which formed the Confederate defenses of Bossier City (then Cane City) and Shreveport from 1864-1865. North Bossier boasts the mountain range referred to by geologists as the Ozark Spur.
