Postcard: Louisiana: New Orleans, Cabildo
E. C. Kropp Co.
Undated postcard featuring an illustration of the courtyard and prison rooms in the Cabildo in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Cabildo was built at the end of the 18th century under Spanish rule. Caption: "The Court Yard and Prison Rooms in the Cabildo at Chartres and St. Peter's Streets. Note the tiers and cells, and the wide galleries around them. The room, with the door standing open on the ground floor, is the cell in which the pirate LaFitte was incarcerated after his capture by the Americans. Later on, his services were accepted by General Jackson and he participated in the Battle of New Orleans, where he covered himself with glory, subsequently receiving a pardon from the Congress of the United States."
