U.S. History class took a trip to NOLA

Students of the senior U.S. History classes traveled to New Orleans last week for their annual trip to visit the National World War II Museum and Oak Alley Plantation.

Before arriving at the museum, everyone was able to have fun at the Court of Two Sisters with a jazz brunch buffet. At the museum, considerable time was spent inside the newly completed Campaigns of Courage Pavilion where students studied artifacts, oral histories and personalities in the sister exhibitions Road to Berlin: European Theater Galleries and Road to Tokyo: Pacific Theater Galleries. That evening, they had a Cajun dinner at Oceana Grill in the French Quarter. The next morning, a stop at Oak Alley Plantation on the banks of the Mississippi River revealed what it was like to live on a sugar cane plantation in the 1830s.
