October ~ Port Hudson Homeschool Day

October 14, 2016, we went out to Port Hudson State Historic Site for their homeschool day.  They had several stations set up to teach about the Civil War.  They included women in the war, medical practice, musket firing and uniform requirements, cannon firing, soldier rations, native soldiers in the war, and the Navy battle at Port Hudson.  This field trip never disappoints, as there is always so much to learn.

After visiting the stations, several of us stayed on the grounds to picnic, play, hike, and visit the museum.  It was a beautiful day to be outside.  The trip proved to be quite a good homeschool day filled with history, physical education, and visiting with friends.
