USA: Jackson Square, New Orleans

I received this card from New Orleans. New Orleans is a major United States port and the largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana. The population of the city was 343,829 as of the 2010 U.S. Census. On the card you can see the Jackson Square. Formerly called the Place d'Arms and dominated by St. Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square was the social and cultural center of the Vieux Carre. The Jackson monument is an outstanding example of perfect balance; the entire weight of the statue rests solely on the hind legs of the horse.
