ST. FRANCISVILLE - Visitors of all ages are invited to Audubon State Historic Site for After the Battle on Saturday, June 22 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Many area houses were taken over by both militaries during the Civil War for use as hospitals.

See what a hospital would have looked like around Oakley House during June 1863 assaults at Port Hudson. Included are ranger led talks on Civil War Medicine and surgery.

"This live interpretation is a great way to showcase to our visitors what life was like in the Louisiana during the early 19th century," said John House, Manager of Audubon S.H.S.

The program is part of Louisiana's commemoration of the Civil War Sesquicentennial.
