Geocache Description:

One of the best known legends of New Orleans is that of Marie Laveau, the great Voodoo Queen. Even today her tomb attracts individuals seeking her aid, especially aid in love.

Almost all that we know of Marie Laveau is from oral tradition. She helped nurse the wounded at the Battle of New Orleans, nursed the sick during the Yellow Fever Epidemic of the 1850's. One of her daughters, Marie Glapion, a striking look alike, took over the role of Voodoo Queen after her death.

***************************************

To ask for Marie Laveau's help in love:

1. mark three X's (XXX) on the tomb. (PLEASE make the X's 'virtual' since this is a 'virtual', you should know that anyone who is caught writing on this or any other grave markers, will be ARRESTED and fined.)

2. knock three times

3. ask for your wish

4. leave an offering at the front of the tomb

The visiting hours are 9am-3pm Monday to Sat. and 9am-12pm on Sundays and Holidays. The gates are LOCKED after hours and they will lock you in.

To claim this virtual cache email me the number on the small disk in front of the tomb. Do not post the answer in your log even if it is encrypted. I will delete any "find" logs which appear to be bogus, counterfeit, or off topic.


Take A litter bag.
