During the mid-1800s, local Acadian, Creole and American landowners struggled against each other over ownership and usage of the area surrounding the Bayou Teche, eventually resulting in a series of violent confrontations.

A reenactment of those hostilities will take place next Saturday, Jan. 27 at the Acadian Farmstead. There will also be a showing of "Belizaire," which focuses on these events, in the Visitors´ Center.
