The Chalmette National Cemetery was created in May 1864 and served also as a cemetery for the Union soldiers who did not make it during the Civil War in the past. The total of 15,000 headstones that you can find inside the cemetery would mark the gravesites of the renowned veterans during the Spanish-American war along with the Vietnam War and the WWI and WWII.

There are also four American who fought during the 1812 war who was buried here even if one of those was the only one who was able to fight during the Battle of New Orleans by 1815. This national cemetery is situated right in the site of that ancient battle right next to the Chalmette Battlefied.
