Scott's Historical to the Chalmette Battlefield

Pedaling to the Parish

Take a tour to St Bernard Parish and the Historic Chalmette Battelfield. Start in the heart of the French Quarter at the feet of the man himself in Jackson Square.

How did Our Lady of Prompt Succor become a national shrine still featured in New Orleans today? Take a ride with us and lets find out.
