was mostly french until around 1830, a lot of french who came from Quebec opened the south. If you go to San Antonio TX you can still see the convents and the seminaries founded by people from Quebec in the 1800-1900 centuries. Same in New Orleans most of the elite like De Bienville  etc are buried in the Vieux Carré. The Mississippi was explored first by the french.

I was referring more to the statement there were no Canadians until 1815...people could not call themselves Canadian as Canada did not exist but there were permanent people here before that who did not consider themselves as belonging to their original homeland anymore eg: the mass arrival in 1783 as an example.
