Bring the National Park Experience to Your Classroom!
For those of you that can't bring your students to the park, you can request one of our curriculum based traveling trunks. Our two trunks deal specifically with the Creole Culture and the Civil War. Each trunk contains lesson plans, videos, and numerous hands-on activities. Our trunks will allow your students to dress up like Civil War soldiers and experience the sensation of ginning cotton by hand. If you're interested in obtaining one of our trunks call 318 356-8441 or send an email to: email@example.com.
Did You Know?
The Slave/Tenant Quarters and Ruins at Oakland Plantation are remnants of a larger
community, which extended for a quarter-mile southward along the river.
After the Civil War, sharecropper and tenant farmer families continued to
live in these quarters as late as the 1970s.
