Walking Tour Stop 1

Standing at this point and looking to your south toward the open field, you are looking at the western edge of the parade ground. To your right is the current railroad that once was used by the New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Railroad, the line used to bring thousands of troops in from all over Louisiana. There was no train depot here at Camp Moore. Instead the men disembarked in the Town of Tangipahoa, ½ mile south, and then marched up here. In your immediate front, along the edge of this field where it meets the road and just past the driveway in your front is where a large two-story Commissary and Quartermaster House stood. All foodstuffs and quartermaster supplies for the various companies were issued here. Just past that point you will notice that the local road disappears to the left. It was in that area that the sutlers or merchant's shops, were located, just along the edge of Beaver Creek. Included in this lot were several restaurant shanties and a photographer. Just past the sutler area was Beaver Creek, which also formed the southern boundary of Camp Moore. If you were to continue around the bend in the road to the left. a large field opens on your front and right. This was the main camp for Camp Moore, where individual companies had their tents and company streets. Proceed to Marker No. 2.
