In 1946 Robert Moses proposed to the city fathers of New Orleans that a forty-foot-high, ninety-foot-wide interstate highway be built through the French Quarter district (Vieux Carre'), a portion of the city that would later be declared a national historic landmark. Those opposed included persons interested in preserving the Vieux Carre' as a livable neighborhood and as a historic district and in continuing an ongoing effort to restore the area.

The Second Battle of New Orleans. The battle has made its way into our culture. The term Second Battle of New Orleans has also been used to describe the controversy in the 1960's over the Vieux Carré Riverfront Expressway (then I-310). It provided the basis for Jimmie Driftwood's oft-recorded song, "The Battle of New Orleans" (a number one hit for Johnny Horton in 1959) which begins: In 1814 we took a little trip, Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip. We took a little bacon and we took a little beans, And we fought the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

The Second Battle of New Orleans: A History of the Vieux Carr±E Riverfront Expressway Controversy. Liva Baker sets one major goal for herself in this book, and accomplishes it admirably. That goal is to craft a reassessment, which conveys to the reader that the desegregation of New Orleans public schools in the early 1960s was just as politically charged and fraught with controversy as any of the busing crises that came to the fore in the 1970s. Prior to Baker's reappraisal, the prevailing notion was that New Orleans public schools had been integrated in a reasonably peaceful fashion.

The Vieux Carré Riverfront Expressway was a controversial, mostly-elevated, never-built freeway that would have cut through the French Quarter (Vieux Carré) of New Orleans, Louisiana. From 1964 to 1969, it was also designated Interstate 310. The freeway would have split from Interstate 10 at exit 237 (Elysian Fields Avenue - Louisiana Highway 3021) and run south along Elysian Fields Avenue to the Mississippi River.
