Yo Jones! Remember Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812?
Big American victory won by the milita.
The Quora has a painting:
The Death of Pakenham at the Battle of New Orleans by F. O. C. Darley
shows the death of British Maj. Gen. Sir Edward Pakenham on January 8, 1815
There is the little matter of the Battle of New Orleans. The Brits were
led by General Pakenham, brother in law of the Duke of Wellington.
“On January 8, 1815, the British marched against New Orleans, hoping
that by capturing the city they could separate Louisiana from the rest
of the United States. Pirate Jean Lafitte, however, had warned the
Americans of the attack, and the arriving British found militiamen under General Andrew Jackson strongly entrenched at the Rodriquez Canal. In
two separate assaults, the 7,500 British soldiers under Sir Edward
Pakenham were unable to penetrate the U.S. defenses, and Jackson’s 4,500 troops, many of them expert marksmen from Kentucky and Tennessee,
decimated the British lines. In half an hour, the British had retreated, General Pakenham was dead, and nearly 2,000 of his men were killed,
wounded, or missing. U.S. forces suffered only eight killed and 13 wounded.”
Jackson outmaneuvered them, out thought them, out strategized them.
The Treaty of Ghent was signed on December 24, 1814. The Battle of New
Orleans was in January 1815. The Battle of Waterloo was June 1815.
Incredibly, Wellington thought the plan if attack of his brother in law
was sound but lay the blame at the hands of the navy. The letter has
been sourced to the Louisiana Historical Quarterly, volume 9, 1969. Also
to the preface of Pakenham Letters: edited by the 5th Earl of Longford
and privately published in 1914 and in Robin Reilly’s The British At The Gates: the New Orleans campaign in the War of 1812, Putnam 1974, notes
188 and 323?.
