Rampart Street:
When Francisco Luis Hector, Baron de Carondelet was the Spanish governor of Louisiana from 1791 to 1797, he strengthened two of the forts that already protected the city and built two new ones: Fort St. Charles and Fort St. Ferdinand. He also added a rampart — a fortification consisting of an embankment, often with a parapet on top — at the back of town. The rampart is, of course, gone, but now we have Rampart Street where it used to be.
