Chalmette Battlefield Reviews & Ratings

  • Great experience. Park Ranger was very informative. I learned about a part of the US history that was previously unaware.

  • This place will humble you. Incredible history.

  • A great piece of our national history hidden across the river by ferry from downtown New Orleans

  • Historic Landmark in Chalmette, LA where the Battle of New Orleans took place led by General Andrew Jackson. The Creole Queen Riverboat is docked on the Mississippi River at the Chalmette Battlefield where they give daily tours. Besides a Cemetery, this National Park also has Beautiful Monuments and an Antebellum Home. There is also a Visitors Center with Battle of New Orleans memorabilia, short videos outlining the Battle and it's Commanders, and a lovely Gift Shop.

  • Chalmette National Cemetery, established in 1864, final resting place for Union soldiers that died in Louisiana during Civil War. Also remains of veterans from the Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, Vietnam and few soldiers from the War of 1812. Beautiful cemetery, well kept. Volunteers clean headstones during volunteer month.
