Myth has it that Natchitoches & Nacogdoches were brothers in a clan whose leader was tired of their constant bickering and ordered them both to leave and set-up their own clans. One walked west and founded Nacogdoches (TX, home of Steven F Austin University) and the otehr foudned Natchitoches (Home of Northwestern Louisiana State University). Every year they have a football game in which the winner gets a cigar store chief for display over the following year.
I graduated from Natchitoches High School, which no longer exists.
