Description: It was America's Agincourt -- a pivotal battle against overwhelming odds that, in its improbable victory, changed the entire future of the young nation. Before the Battle of New Orleans, as the dismal War of 1812 dragged on, many in Europe considered the U.S. merely a temporary experiment in freedom. After the dramatic victory on January 10, 1815-when a motley coalition of troops under Andrew Jackson inflicted thousands of British casualties with only a handful of losses -- never again did the American people have to prove to themselves or anyone else their right to hold a sovereign, independent republic. Jackson became their savior and hero -- and a figure of national prominence.

The cast of characters is rich, long, and wildly colorful, from Jean Lafitte and the Barartaria pirates, allied with Tennesseeans and Kentuckians under Old Hickory, to the invading General Edward Pakenham, to the suspicious Creole citizenry who had only recently become Americans at all. This is popular American history at its best, told in a rollicking, cannon-fire filled narrative by the world's leading authority on Andrew Jackson, whom Doug Brinkley has called a "national treasure."
