A Riverboat visit to the Chalmette Battlefield, site of the Battle of New Orleans

The third day of my New Orleans visit was set aside for a trip down the Mississippi River to the famous Chalmette Battlefield where General Andrew Jackson fought the bloody British in the Battle of New Orleans.  It was the final battle of The War of 1812 which was also known as the 2nd Revolutionary War. 

Now you can easily drive over to the Chalmette Battlefield, but we chose a much more exciting mode and bought tickets for the riverboat trip that takes you to the site via the Mississippi River on the Creole Queen riverboat.  The cost is $23 per person and well worth it!
