Port Hudson National Cemetery
Ranked #2 of 7 things to do in Zachary
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 April 2011

We stopped by the Port Hudson National Cemetery as we had known that it had some of the original confederate earthworks of the fortification of Port Hudson. This was established in 1866. The remains of many of the Union soldiers that fell in the battle were buried there. It is an active Military Cemetery with about 300 burials per year. We picked up a brochure there that gave a detailed account of the battle. We were unable to turn the motorhome with tow around in the parking lot but got permission to go into the service area to turn around. We then went to the Port Hudson State Historic Site a few miles North The address being 236 Hwy 61 Jackson, LA.
