Long Description:
Great place to visit. The Metairie Cemetery is full of Civil war veterans and memorials and monuments. The entire 650 acre cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Features a self guided tour of Louisiana Heritage sites, which feature most of the Cicil war sites. From the Official Metairie cemetery website, listed below, about the Memorial it states:

The Army of Tennessee tumulus, which contains 48 crypts and stands 30 feet high, is adorned with two statues. Atop the tumulus is a statue of General Albert Sidney Johnston on his horse, Fire Eater. At the opening of the tumulus is a statue of a Confederate solider, thought to be the image of Sergeant William Brunet of the Louisiana Guard Battery, giving a roll call of fallen soldiers. General P.G.T. Beauregard is buried here.
