By Mary Ann Sternberg, LSU Press, 2007. Originally known as Bayou D'Iberville as the explorer used this waterway to travel to and from Baton Rouge and his outpost on Ship Island in 1699. Manchac leads from the Mississippi River to Lakes Maurepas, Pontchartrain and the Gulf of Mexico. An Indian word meaning back way, Manchac's history is rich and spellbinding.
