The Sound of Thunder

July 02, 2022

Visitors will be able to experience a cannon demonstration at Audubon State Historic Site on Saturday, July 2 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The event is to mark the origin of the site. Oakley Plantation began as a land grant to a Revolutionary War veteran of the Battle of Baton Rouge. We remember this turbulent time during our demonstration of the loading and firing of a reproduction cannon of the type used at the battle. Visitors are invited to have a rare "hands on" experience with history.  Demonstration is included in the park grounds fee.
