Port Hudson fieldtrip

On Friday, October 17th, we attended the Port Hudson Homeschool Day.  They always do a great job with this program.  First off, they always fire the big cannon and then you begin rotating through the stations.  The stations this year were:

  1. Cannon demonstration
  2. Medicine in the battlefield
  3. Soldier life – uniform and gun demonstration
  4. Civil war boats
  5. Soldier life – rations
  6. Civil war cooking – tasting salt pork and johnny cakes
  7. Town ball
  8. Music demonstration
