Step back in time and celebrate the holidays in 1800s style. The historic Malus-Beauregard House will be decorated in period style; reenactors will portray residents of the house and share stories of their Yuletide plans.

Outside on the battlefield, join the high school JROTC living history corps for "Christmas at War" to discover Christmas 1814, when American troops camped on this very spot---with invading British troops just downriver.

The Malus-Beauregard House is located at Chalmette Battlefield, 8606 West St. Bernard Hwy. in Chalmette.
