FEATURED SITE

Our featured site for January and February is The Confederate Memorial Hall, located in the Arts District of New Orleans.

 

 

Also known as the Louisiana Civil War Museum, Memorial Hall is the oldest museum in the state, opening 129 years ago in January of 1891. The architecturally significant building contains the second largest collection of Confederate artifacts in the world. Among the items are cannons, guns, and regalia, as well as personal belongings of Braxton Bragg, Robert E. Lee and other Southern generals. The museum amassed much of its collection as donations from former soldiers. Amongst the collection is a display of more than 100 flags, representing old military regiments of Louisiana, including the flag that was draped over the coffin of Jefferson Davis. Be sure to visit the Hall’s gift shop and pick up something from their excellent selection of books, toys and souvenirs, and perhaps, some Cartridge Candy. Tell them Sutler Cyrus sent you!
