Embedded in the banks of Bayou Teche to the east of this site and visible from here are the boilers of the gunboat Diana. Originally a Federal vessel operating on the lower Teche, it was captured by the Confederates. During the Bisland campaign, under the command of Oliver J. Semmes, son of the Confederate raider, Admiral Raphael Semmes, the Diana effectively harassed the attacking Federals. Damaged in the fighting, the ship was fired by her crew to prevent capture.
