NEW ORLEANS - A live performance on Civil War History will be held on Saturday, Feb. 15 from noon to 4 p.m.

In conjunction with The Historic New Orleans Collection’s current exhibition, “Occupy New Orleans! Voices from the Civil War,” living history characters Roscoe, Lee & Abadie will return to entertain visitors with songs, magic, theater and witty repartee during two more Saturday-afternoon visits. The troupe’s performances and interactions with the audience provide opportunities for children and parents alike to understand this important period in New Orleans’s history.
