During the day this museum tells the story of General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard, the Confederate General best remembered for his victory at Bull Run, but after dark it's supposed to receive visitors from another plane. The General lived in this house at 1113 Chartres Street after the war, but it was the Giacona family and their mafia connections that seemed to start the trouble. Four mafia members were found dead there after the family defended themselves against an attack. After that neighbours reported hearing gunshots – but not modern ones, the kinds used in the Civil War: pistols, muskets and cannons.
