Louisiana Military Hall of Fame and Museum

Louisiana Military Hall of Fame and Museum is an on-going project that will honor every Louisianian who has served, is serving, or will serve for the freedom of our country.  A display includes every name of every Louisiana veteran dating back to the Spanish-American War.

One of the military artifacts on display is a Higgins Boat from World War II.  Higgins Boats were designed by Andrew Higgins of New Orleans.  It is a landing craft which allowed soldiers to disembark from the vessel onto a beach much easier than before.  General Dwight D. Eisenhower was quoted as saying that Andrew Higgins “is the man who won the war for us.”
