Royal Destinations outside Europe - New Orleans - United States of America

This is my first 'Royal Destinations outside Europe' post.
It is about some important history of the United States of America.

A city in the United States of America that might be called a '
Royal Destination' is New Orleans.
It's history and its ties with European History really fascinates me.

New Orleans is located in the state of Louisiana near the Mississippi River.
