Battle of New Orleans

While I was up in the frozen north shoveling snow, Brian flew back to New Orleans for the Park's grand re-opening ceremony at the Chalmette battlefield. The ceremony was held last weekend, in conjunction with the anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans.

The is the new visitor center at the battlefield. The old one was destroyed in Katrina, and the storm did major damage to the National Cemetary and it's historic walls and buildings, as well as the Beauregard plantation house, outbuildings, and the Monument. Rebuilding and restoration was one of Brian's top priorities during the last 5 years, and it was nice that he got to go back and cut the ribbon at the re-opening.
Unfortunatly I didn't get to go with him on this trip; someone had to stay behind to shovel snow around here!
