Bogalusa is a city in Washington Parish, Louisiana, United States. The name derives from the Choctaw language term bogue lusa, which translates into English as "dark water or "smoky water" Located in an area of pine forests, in the early 20th century, this industrial city was developed as a company town, to provide worker housing and services in association with a Great Southern Lumber Company sawmill. In the late 1930s, this operation was replaced with paper mills and chemical operations. It is the principal city of the Bogalusa Micropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Washington Parish and is also part of the larger New OrleansMetairieHammond combined statistical area. At its peak in 1960, the city had more than 21,000 residents. The city was designed by architect Rathbone DeBuys of New Orleans and built from the ground up in less than a year. It was called the "Magic City" in praise of its rapid construction. In 1919 workers went on strike, triggering the largest labor strife at the town's Great Southern sawmill in the world. On August 31, 1919, Black veteran Lucius McCarty was accused of assaulting a white woman and a mob shot him more than 1,500 times. The mob then dragged his body through the black neighborhoods before burning his body in a bonfire. During the civil rights era, black workers had come to the town for work for their country. After World War II, African-American veterans struggled in Louisiana and the South against the oppression of Jim Crow laws.

History

Incorporated in 1914, Bogalusa is one of the youngest towns in Louisiana. It was founded by Frank Henry Goodyear and Charles Waterhouse Goodyear, lumber barons of Buffalo, New York. In 1919 workers went on strike, triggering the largest labor strife at the town's Great Southern Lumber Company, the largest sawmill in the world. After World War II and service for their country, African-American veterans struggled in Louisiana and the South against the oppression of Jim Crow laws, state segregation, and exclusion from the political system. In 1964, as civil rights activists continued to push for their constitutional rights, whites increased their resistance to their fight for their rights. In 1985 Crown-Zellerbach was split up but the timber industry continued. At its peak in 1960, the city had more than 21,000 residents. The city was designed by architect Rathbone DeBuys of New Orleans and built from the ground up in less than a year. The town was laid out with the "Mill Town" on the south side and "Commercial Town" in the north side. There were four quadrants with racially segregated neighborhoods defined by the railroad running northsouth and Bogue Lusa Creek running eastwest. In 1937 BogalUSA Paper Company merged with Gaylord Container Corporation; a chemical plant also run by Gaylord was built next to the mill. The paper mill and chemical operations continued to anchor the city's economy. White workers resisted integration opportunities, especially after the Civil Rights Law of 1964. Black workers also struggled against the industrial class system. Local Ku Klux Klan members dominated the region.
