Real life equivalents of each state?

Except that you can ride a horse from Van Horn to Blackwater in about 15 minutes, making that about an 8 mile ride. That would make the Map less than 20 miles wide at any point.

TBH RDRII's world is more an approximation of the real thing, it's supposed to capture the spirit of each region rather than being truly representational.


Otherwise you could start making points about how each state lacks a capitol, how the railways make no sense, etc.

Is there red soil in Louisiana? I wouldn't know, but I guess if it does than its possible that Lemoyne is completely based on Louisiana.

We do have some areas that have red soil.


Baton Rouge is a city west of New Orleans (just like Rhodes is west of Saint Denis). Baton Rouge is French and translates to Red Stick. The present-day name of the city, however, dates back to 1699, when French explorers noted a red cypress tree stripped of its bark that marked the boundary between Houma and Bayou Goula's tribal hunting grounds. They called the tree "le baton rouge," or red stick. The native Indiana name for the site had been Istrouma. It is also the capital of the state.


There are other places like Orange Texas and Lake Charles Louisiana that border the two state's. Both are to the west of new Orleans like Rhodes and I'm pretty sure both have red soil. If not the land north of there certainly does.


...add to that the yellow fever plagues that practically whipped out a few towns in Louisiana during the late 1800's and how that ties in with the town of Pleasance and the plague references...

Then it's probably a safe bet that all of Lemoyne is in-fact a recreation of Louisiana.
