The Tools of War gallery of the D-Day Invasion of Normandy exhibit displays the equipment and arms used by American and German troops at D-Day. Weapons are grouped according to their order of deployment in an amphibious operations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bombers and heavy guns would be the main source of firepower in the initial stages. Following troop landings on the beaches, both sides would be able to use machine guns, submachine guns, rifles, mortars, and rocket launchers. The last weapons used would be those effective only at very close range — grenades, mines and anti-mine devices, pistols, and bayonets.
The National World War II Museum will be hosting a concert of patriotic songs performed by the New Orleans Concert Band on July 4th, starting at 1 PM. Arrive early and explore the museum before the concert to learn more about our country and our role in World War II.
Enjoy Dinner On The River
Have dinner on a riverboat – both the Creole Queen and the Natchez are offering special menus for the holiday, while cruising you down the Mississippi River.

After dinner is finished, you’ll be able to, from the deck, watch…

Two boats, both doing their own fireworks display and trying to outdo the other. It’s a spectacle to be seen, and whether you’re actually on the river or on the riverbank, the whole town turns out for this event.
