The Battle of New Orleans was a defining event in America’s national identity. The Friends of the Cabildo Battle of New Orleans Tour offers a fascinating look at the battle away from the battlefield, from lost locations of forts that protected the city, to Jackson’s headquarters, to events in the French Quarter related to the unfolding battle. First developed for the Bicentennial of the Battle of New Orleans (2015) the tour continues to draw historians, locals and tourist for a unique perspective on this turning point in American history.
