Chalmette Battlefield

Fewer than 10 miles from the French Quarter, historic Chalmette Battlefield offers visitors a moment of quiet peace. This 17.5-acre site is so much more than a local treasure: It’s where the last land battle ever fought on American soil occurred between the US and a foreign power, back in 1815. Today, the grounds are the final resting place for more than 15,300 veterans, from the Revolutionary War to the Vietnam War.
