The Camp Moore Historical Association has announced (from FB post) that there is a re-enactment scheduled for this weekend. The battle is on Saturday around 2pm and on Sunday at 1pm. However, the grounds will open at 9 am both days and the museum opens at 10 am.

From the Camp Moore website:
Camp Moore was the largest Confederate training camp in Louisiana and the only Confederate training camp still open to the public…..Camp Moore, named for Louisiana Governor Thomas Overton Moore, was located about 78 miles north of New Orleans on the New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Railroad ( currently the Illinois Central Gulf Railroad) about one half mile north of Tangiphoa Station, La.  The vast majority of the volunteer regiments and battalions which brought fame and honor to the State of Louisiana during the War for Southern Independence were assembled, organized and trained at this camp.”

There is also a Camp Moore Confederate museum with research facilities.
