Chateau LeMoyne

The British assault on the American Position at New Orleans

We celebrated the 200th anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans in the city where it took place. We were headquartered in the Chateau LeMoyne, in the heart of the French Quarter.

The schedule included private multi-course dinners at Armand’s and Antoine’s, two of the French Quarter’s most fabled restaurants (each a short walk from our hotel), and a riverboat trip on Sunday down the Mississippi to Chalmette, where we toured the battlefield.
