Re-enactors based in Thibodaux will tell the history of the Bayou Lafourche region during the Civil War and demonstrate camp cooking, military drill and other aspects of life in the Union and Confederate armies this weekend.
The unit called Hellfire Stew Mess/Bouanchaud's Battery will spend the weekend encamped at the E.D. White Historic Site.
A news release from the Louisiana State Museum and Friends of E.D. White Historic Site says the event is free and open to the public.
Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre says a reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for a home burglary in Thibodaux.
Webre said Tuesday that the burglary was reported Jan. 8. The victims returned home that day around 4 p.m. to find a broken window and several items missing from the home, including several firearms, jewelry and gold coins.
Investigators believe the crime likely occurred between 12:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Jan. 8.
A new fire station planned for Thibodaux will serve residences, a hospital and Nicholls State University.
The founders of Acadia Plantation donated 1.5 acres of land for the station, which the Thibodaux Volunteer Fire Department has been planning for years.
The Daily Comet reports that the station will be the department's tenth in the city. Fire Chief Randy Pate said he hopes to begin the public bid process for contractors in the next six to eight months and to break ground possibly by the end of the year.
