The Battle of New Orleans

"A slight breeze moved the fog away before him," Harry Albright states in New Orleans - The Battle of the Bayous. "There were the British Redcoats heading straight for the point he had determined would be their objective...The red-coated infantry with their white cross belts and glittering bayonets, and the Scottish regiment with its tartan plaided trousers, created an unforgettable picture of war."

"Gentlemen, the British are below the city! We mist fight them tonight."

-- Gen. Andrew Jackson

The site where Jackson had assembled his troops was a natural bottle-neck between the Mississippi river and the Rodriguez Canal.  This forced the British  to charge into the fog and smartly position US troops.     As the each successive line of British fell, they created unseen fog covered obstacles for the men behind them. Tripping over their fallen comrades as a swarm of bullets cut their lines to shreads British gallantry waned.

British General Pakenham, seeing the awkwardness of the British advance, tried   to restore confidence. "Onward!’ he cried, "onward, lads!" until a bullet silenced him forever. The British turned retreated and Jackson won a great battle.

Letter provided by the Gallery of Fame
