In 1864, La Salle received royal approval for his plans to establish a French colony in newly named Louisiana, at the mouth of the Mississippi. Unfortunately, his ship from France went off course and he landed in present-day Texas. A colony was established, but eventually failed, and La Salle was assassinated by his own men. Henri Joutel survived, however, and his account is the best description available of La Salle's last expedition to Louisiana and Texas.
