Scout's honor!

Ok, this next leg of the trip begins with Lafayette Square, laid out in 1837 and named for the Marquis de Lafayette, who helped the Americans win the Revolution. Seen above is St John the Baptist Catholic Cathedral, built from 1873 to 1896, then destroyed by fire and rebuilt in 1899.

This is Calhoun square, laid out in 1851 as one of the last squares. It is named for John C. Calhoun, the fiery South Carolina politician and Secretary of War.
