penguin chick pictureHI EVERYBODY!!

Penguins don't get buried. Neither do walruses. We just fade away and drift off into the Antarctic Ocean.

Located next to the site of the Battle of New Orleans is Chalmette National Cemetary.
Established in 1864, it was created to honor Union soldiers who died in Louisiana during the Civil War.
Almost 12,000 soldiers, whites and blacks alike are buried here.
