That is about it, not too much to see really. It is awesome if you are a history buff, but is not a huge sight to see, like a military installation or a Fort.

This is just one of MANY historic monuments and graves in a most Wonderful cemetery, Metairie Cemetery. My wifes family is interned in this cemetery, and we explore every time we visit the family crypts. The old section has the most interesting/fascinating sites. It's free...More

It is part of Southern History. It is a drive by attraction. It is not in a good neighborhood. Go during the middle of the day. Take a few pictures. There is nothing but this monument in the area to go see.
