  • We took the paddle boat down to the site. The mansion on site stands stark in the middle of a field. We walked over to the monument and looked at the cannons on-site. It was a fun trip.  more »
  • Peaceful and serene. The monument reminds me of a shorter version of the Washington Monument. I went to the top and took some incredible photos. It was relatively cool with the thick concrete wall the monument is made out of.
  • Having lived near this monument for years I can appreciate its beauty in a place surrounded by, well, not so much beauty. The large, old oak trees are majestic, and the old plantation house is something to see and appreciate. The place has history and it is interesting to learn of the difference in casualties between the British and Americans during the battle fought here. If you visit, don't forget the cemetery off to the side, and if you walk over the levee to the Mississippi there is a concrete wall you can walk on. My rating is with respect to other national parks that I have visited.
