Port Hudson State Historic Site
Port Hudson State Historic Site, Zachary - Ghost Ships on the River, 6:30 p.m. To commemorate Admiral Farragut's naval attack on the Confederate river batteries at Part Hudson (March 14-15, 1863), a park ranger will lead the visitors on a walk to Fort Desperate and will share stories with the visitors of paranormal phenomena that have taken place in and around the Port Hudson battlefield. The tour will then return to museum where the staff will conduct a special night firing of the site's three artillery pieces including the always popular 42- pounder cannon. There will also have a presentation at the site's pond with the model gunboat fleet and pyrotechniques about Admiral Farragut's attack on Port Hudson.
