Attraction Type/s: Historic Site

Description: The last land battle ever fought on American soil between the United States and a foreign enemy took place only ten miles from what is today downtown New Orleans. The Battle of New Orleans, which actually occurred in Chalmette nearly two weeks after the treaty that ended the War of 1812 was signed, was significant in a number of ways. For one, it gave a much-needed boost to sagging American morale at the end of one of the most disastrous wars in American history. It also kept the British from capturing New Orleans preventing England from gaining greater leverage in negotiating the still-evolving peace terms of the Treaty of Ghent. At the site today is a monument built in the style of an ancient Egyptian obelisk and a large open field, on which markers show the approximate locations of the American and British positions. A ring road circles the battlefield, with convenient pull-offs where signs describe the various aspects of the battle. The Malus-Beauregard House, an antebellum plantation also stands on the grounds.
