National Park
Jean Lafitte National Historical Park consists of six sites in and around New Orleans. The park honors Cajun culture in general and Jean Lafitte in particular. Lafitte was a notorious pirate and smuggler, who came to the aid of General Andrew Jackson in the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812. The visitor center has historic walking tours of the French Quarter and is a great starting place for information regarding the other sites around New Orleans.

In 1840 plans were put into place to commission a statue of Andrew Jackson for the center of Jackson Square. The bronze statue of General Jackson atop his horse was completed on December 1, 1855, but was not unveiled in New Orleans until February 9, 1856. A crowd of nearly 25,000 people gathered around Jackson Square for the unveiling ceremony. Artist Clark Mills designed the statue at a cost of $30,000. The Louisiana legislature also had allocated $10,000 for the project. Most of the remaining funding for the project is said to have been donated by the Baroness Micaela Almonaster de Pontalba.
