Jackson Square, in the heart of the French Quarter, contains a church, a seat of government and major stores. Along with all of the other important elements, there is a historic landmark called Washington Artillery Park. It is a raised concrete area creating a great spot to stop and relax while you watch the paddle boats glide down the Mississippi. The mounted canon is a model of the same canon used in the Civil War. This monument honors the local 141st Field Artillery of the Louisiana National Guard that saw action from the Civil War through World War II.
