Demonstrators will be on-site depicting daily activities of the mid-1800’s. It was during this time period in South Louisiana when small Acadian farmers were being pushed off their lands by bands of vigilantes made up of wealthier Creoles and les Americans. The highlight of the day will occur at 11am and 1pm when a reenactment of these events will take place at the Acadian Farmstead.
