Camp Moore was the largest Confederate training camp in Louisiana and the only one in the United States still open to the public.  Opened in May 1861 as a site to organize, train and disperse soldiers from Louisiana to all points of the Confederacy, it saw as many as 35,000 men cross this ground and then on to places such as Shiloh, Sharpsburg, Manassas, Malvern Hill, Franklin, Atlanta, Mobile, Chattanooga, Cedar Creek, Chantilly, Fredericksburg, Spottsylvania, Murfreesboro, Mansfield, Williamsburg, Gettysburg, Port Republic and Petersburg, to name a few.  These sons of Louisiana fought in most every major and many minor battles for four long years in the South's bid to attain independence.  Visit where their epic journey in time began, Camp Moore.
