Was the D-Day Museum in New Orleans damaged badly?
I don't know where in the city it's located but I was just thinking about it.

3. There were early reports that
it was looted, but it looks like it just turned out to be the giftshop part.

The Museum of the Confederacy across the street from it was unharmed.

The worst historical damage appears to have been the complete loss of Beaviour (sp?), which was Jefferson Davis's last home near the coast in Mississippi. Apparently many original historic papers and letters were permanently lost in the flood.
