Drawing of the Chalmette Monument erected to commemorate the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812.
The monument at Chalmette has a long history that goes back to 1839, when interest rose in creating a suitable memorial to the American victory at the Battle of New Orleans. After several aborted attempts, the monument was finally erected in 1908 and the formal dedication of the 100-foot obelisk occurred on January 8, 1915, the centennial of the Battle of New Orleans.
