On January 11, 2013, we traveled to New Orleans to witness a reenactment of the Battle of New Orleans. The reenactment took place on the original battlefield, which happens to be about a mile from where Mike’s mom lives. The following morning we went to the Chalmette Battlefield to view several demonstrations related to the Battle of New Orleans. The weekend was very informative. Susan was probably the most excited since it is a topic that she teaches in fifth grade. The photograph is a cannon demonstration. Click on the photograph to view the entire album.
