Travel Tips for Jefferson

What's the History of Mardi Gras?

by VeronicaG

Mardi Gras was borrowed from the ancient celebration of Lupercalia. Church hierarchy became concerned about the pagan aspects of this event, so determined to change it for the better rather than stop it altogether.

They decided to use parts of the celebration and unite them with elements of the Christian faith. Now Mardi Gras precedes the Lenten season.

Mardi Gras was first brought to America by French Explorer, Iberville in 1699, who camped about 60 miles from New Orleans on the day it was celebrated in France. The location was named Point du Mardi Gras.

Dubloons!

by VeronicaG

Besides the shiny beads, revelers tossed dubloons from the floats, too. Pictured are those I gathered from Mardi Gras.

One side of the coin shows a Riverboat and the caption, Jefferson Texas. The opposite side of the dubloon gives the name of King Jacques XIX, one of the 'royals' of Mardi Gras.

The King was an amiable individual with whom we enjoyed life entertainment at the Bull Durham Playhouse on Saturday evening. During lulls in the performance, he'd strut to the front in his royal robe and throw the dubloons and necklaces into the audience.

The coins have no value, except as mementos of our trip.

Annual Events

by keeweechic

Annual events that attract heavy tourism include the Jefferson Pilgrimage (the first weekend in May); the Christmas Candlelight Tour (December); and Mardi Gras Upriver (spring). June – Jefferson Jazz Festival.

Marshall

by keeweechic

Marshall is only 16 miles south of Jefferson. It was one of the biggest and wealthiest cities in the state when Texas seceded from the Union in 1861. There are many historic homes and B&B's and well know for Marshall Pottery which is worth a visit. (see my Marshall page).

The Battle of Port Jefferson Re-Enactment

by VeronicaG

Imagination created the Battle of Port Jefferson, a re-enactment portraying what may have happened IF the Confederate troops had not defeated Union General Nathan Banks in Mansfield, Louisiana. They might indeed have entered Jefferson...this is the "what if" scenario.

The Gray (pic #2) and the Blue (pic #2) meet here each year in tents, campers and patriotic fervor. Several bivouacks are set up throughout town in parks or green areas, where camp fires blaze and period costumes dot the landscape.

This event begins with a parade of the Union and Confederate participants through Jefferson. Skirmishes play out on the streets, soldiers on horseback gallop by, ladies in lovely gowns ply the sidewalks (pic #3) and gunfire erupts as one side confronts the other. It was fun to be in the middle of this chaos!

The main battle took place on Saturday afternoon at 4pm.
