Old Southern Plantations/Ghost Tours Along I-10

I've pretty much lived on the IRV2 forum since we got our class A so I want to tap into the great knowledge base for some planning help.
Our Great Grandson graduates from training at Fort Huachuca, AZ Feb 9th so we're headed out from NE Florida to SE Arizona the first week of February in our recently acquired 2012 Bounder 35K. The trip out will be just the two of us with not a lot of sightseeing on the way out. Our daughter and SIL will fly out for the graduation and to spend a few days in SE AZ, then come back with us in the RV. We have reservations at Tombstone Territories RV Resort in Huachuca City, AZ.
The daughter is addicted to the ghost hunter stuff and wants to visit some of the old southern plantations and gravesites. We've been to New Orleans so that ticket is punched.
The basic return plan is to take 2~3 days from AZ to LA then tour the southern part of the gulf states until we hit FL. I'm looking for suggestions not too far off I-10 to visit thru LA, MS, and AL.
I'd like to stop at a decent RV park for the night, visit the area the next day, and continue on the following day to the next site.
I want to make the final stop at the USS Alabama so we'll stay at a park near there.
We won't be towing a car so a short term rental, Uber or cabs will be used for local transportation.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Laura Plantation and San Francisco Plantation are wonderful choices in Louisiana. Tours readily available from New Orleans. World War II museum in New Orleans is a MUST. Downtown and walkable from French Quarter.
French Quarter RV a bit pricy for me but located at edge of FQ and walkable to all. Add cost of transport to n from other parks compensates.

From where you're staying in AZ I'm sure you're aware of nearby Tombstone. Also in the area are Fairbanks and Charleston.

In New Mexico at the AZ border at Lordsburg is Shakespeare Ghost Town.

Google them! Have fun!

LSU has a old plantation restored in Baton Rouge.

We spent most of a day there. Excellent!

Thanks. Those are some good suggestions to start planning with.
We stayed at the French Quarter RV Resort for a week a couple of summers ago. Nice park and within walking distance to the Quarter. It's right next to the cemetery where Marie Laveau is supposed to be buried. The wife and daughter were thrilled with that.
We'll have about 4 days in the Tombstone area so we hope to see the obligatory sights like the OK Corral. I've been told that Bisbee is also a neat, artsy type of place so I'm sure we'll go there also.

As you're heading west toward Tombstone you'll pass a bunch of signs advertising a place called "The Thing" - stop in for the best kitschy tourist attraction in the southwest! Admission is $1 if I recall...

That's on the list for the few days we'll be in the area.
