- To commemorate the bicentennial of the Battle of New Orleans, the Louisiana State Museum will unveil a new exhibit. Fought two weeks after American and British diplomats signed a peace treaty, the Battle of New Orleans transformed the identity of the Unites States.
- On behalf of the Louisiana State Museum, and with leadership by its former Jazz Curator Emeritus Don Marquis, we are raising money to fabricate and install a 2,500 square foot exhibition of one-of-a-kind jazz artifacts in the French Quarter of New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz.
- Time is a cruel enemy to uniforms, battle flags, and other textiles from the War of 1812
