My first recollection of learning about the Battle of New Orleans was a song by Johnny Horton titled “The Battle of New Orleans.” The lyrics introduced the listener to a man they called “Old Hickory,” the British running through the swamps, and alligators used as ammunition. It made for a story any 10-year-old would love! Though the lyrics of the song were not an accurate account of the battle, it definitely piqued my interest.

Let’s take a look back at the War of 1812 and a January day in 1815 at the Battle of New Orleans.

    The War of 1812 is pretty fascinating; it gave us a national hero with Andrew Jackson
