"The Battle of Chalmette" Chalmette by grandmaR

Chalmette Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 74 photos

We arrived on the Creole Queen, a paddlewheel boat, to tour the battlefield. We had a talk by the park ranger which was excellent (and free) but we didn't have much time there because we had to leave to get back to New Orleans.

The National Park Service Chalmette Battlefield and National Cemetery preserves the site of the January 8, 1815, Battle of New Orleans. The significance of the site is that it was a decisive American victory over the British at the end of the War of 1812.
