Jackson Square

Recommended
Laid out as a military parade ground known as Place d'Armes, the fenced and landscaped square at the foot of Orleans Street was renamed in 1851 to honor Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), hero of the Battle of New Orleans and seventh US president. The monumental statue of Jackson astride a rearing horse was dedicated in 1856.
