Thunderstorms and traffic jams on the highways delayed our arrival to Camp Moore just at was closing at 3 PM on a Saturday. Mentioning my Confederate ancestor, who was a Lt. Colonel for the 1st Louisiana Infantry Regiment, and who died six years after the war's end just 30 miles away, the docent volunteered to stay open just a bit... More

I had passed this place multiple times but never had the opportunity to give it a look. There is a walking self-tour that is well designed and presented, with nice write-ups on what you are looking at and what happened where.

Camp Moore is worth the fairly short drive from New Orleans. While this is not a large museum it is steeped in history, having been one of the main training sites in Louisiana during the Civil War. This is also the birthplace of Wheat’s Tigers, one of the more colorful Zouave units in the war. A bit of research on... More

It is worth a side trip to this small Civil War site near Hwy 51. The museum has interesting displays of Civil War (known as the War of Northern Aggression in the south) artifacts and a film to watch in the lower floor. Learn about the Confederate training camp, which was moved from New Orleans due to the temptations of... More
