Prompt Succor: A Correction

On January 8, I commented that here in New Orleans the anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans is popularly known as the "Feast of Our Lady of Prompt Succor," but that this was only a popular, not a proper, designation.
Turns out it is the Feast of Our Lady of Prompt Succor after all, and not only: at the national shrine it is a Solemnity, as big a feast as you can get.
I stand corrected!
