We have many beautiful and historic Civil War sites here in Louisiana, and if you want to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the War with something really special this weekend, March 28 and 29, then head to Port Hudson State Historic Site. for the annual Civil War re-enactment.

From our friends at LouisianaTravel.com, there are a variety of activities for the whole family, including civilian merchants 'selling reproduction items, ladies washing clothes and cooking as it would have been done in the 1860s and a Sunday morning church service.'

Check out the schedule of events at Port Hudson State Historic Site, which is located at 236 Hwy 61, Jackson, LA., and bring the family for a real life Louisiana history lesson!
