France and Spain in New Orleans: Part I

Joan of Arc: A Gift of the People of France. Present location: by the French Market, Peters and Decatur. Joan of Arc served with the victorious French forces defending "Old" Orléans (in 1428–1429) against English attackers during the Hundred Years War, which France ultimately won as well.
Fleurs-de-lis can be seen all over the Vieux Carré, the "old square" or French and Spanish Quarter.
A little map of the Quarter put out by the US National Park Service.
