Chalmette National Cemetery-- Part 1: Next to the Chalmette Battlefield
From the May 28, 2018, WGNO (New Orleans) "NOLA 300: Memories of wars past at Chalmette National Cemetery" by Mark Deane.
The cemetery is located right next to Chalmette Battlefield where Andrew Jackson's outnumbered hodge-podge American army defeated the British at the famed Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812.
The Chalmette National Cemetery also contains the remains of four War of 1812 veterans.
