The Libertarian Party of Louisiana (LPL) was founded in 1973.
Walking Liberty Award
This award recognizes an outstanding individual who rises above the crowd by personally spreading the Libertarian message through personal contact with more citizens and voters than anyone else. There is no requirement that it be given on a periodic basis, and is only awarded when someone meets the standard set by the inaugural recipient, T.Lee Horne, III. The award itself is a current year proof version of the Silver American Eagle coin with the "Walking Liberty" design.
