Old New Orleans was quite the place to be back in the mid-1800s. A tumultuous time whose difficulties were felt by all, (thanks, yellow fever) the era still mystifies locals and visitors to this day. NOLA.com's got info on a new book that explores the mid-1800s through the microcosm of the Hermann-Grima House, where Luxury, Inequality & Yellow Fever: Living Legacies and the Story of Old New Orleans is celebrating its book launch tonight. See you there! [NOLA.com]
