After the guns of the battlefield grow silent comes help for the wounded. Come to Audubon State Historic Site and explore the world of Civil War medicine and surgery.  View what a temporary field hospital would have looked like in this display and demonstration. Explore the world of medicine in the Civil War as we look at how disease and illness was treated by the armies of either side.
 
Zouaves!
June 24th, 10 AM ~ 4 PM
Come to Audubon State Historic Site and explore the history of three Zouave clad units that all either served in Louisiana or were raised in Louisiana during the American Civil War. The 165th New York served in most of the major campaigns in Louisiana while Coppen’s Zouaves and Wheat’s Tiger Rifles would see service in Virginia. The activity includes a look at the uniforms and equipment of the men and a discussion on the “ Zouave Craze” that swept the nation during the Civil War.
