ST. FRANCISVILLE -Louisiana's Civil War past comes alive at Audubon
State Historic Site for The Civil War Homefront 1862 on Saturday July 14th.

Civil War reenactors dressed in authentic reproduction costumes of the armies of both North and South will be on hand to present a look at life in Civil War Louisiana. The calendar turns back to the summer of 1862 at Oakley Plantation. You may visit a recreated Confederate recruiting station and sign up for the army. Afterwards drill with the state militia and acquaint yourself with how a Civil War firearm works.
Visitors may witness the newest substitutes for items now lost to the Union blockade.
We provide camping on the historic plantation grounds, hay, water, and one meal. We need Living History reenactors along with period crafts.
Numbers are limited and preregistration is required.
