Sintesi dell'editore

This book addresses a pivotal and overlooked moment in American history. In 1815, Britain's crack troops, fresh from victories against Napoleon, were stunningly defeated near New Orleans by a ragtag army of citizen soldiers under the fledgling commander Andrew Jackson, whom they dubbed "Old Hickory." It was this battle that first defined the United States as a military power to be reckoned with and an independent democracy here to stay.

The Battle of New Orleans sets its scenes with an almost unbelievably colorful cast of characters - a happenstance coalition of militia-men, regulars, untrained frontiersmen, free blacks, Indians, townspeople, and of course, Jackson himself. His glorious, improbable victory will catapult a once-poor, uneducated orphan boy into the White House and forge the beginning of a true nation.

"Todd provides a spirited, unvoiced presentation. He reads in a clear, distinct voice that is easy to follow. The dramatic text needs no further embellishment." ( KLIATT)
"Todd skillfully handles this well-documented history of the final battles of the War of 1812." ( Booklist)

Pronunciation please!

The narratot’s pronunciation of New Orleans names and places was abysmal. His pronunciation of Lake Borgne was especially especially offensive. It is pronounced Lake BORN not bornya

The book and event that crushes CRT

People of New New Orleans in 1815 - of all races, classes and nationalities unit and crush the ruling elites Tyranny wrapped class bigotry, racial hatred and self righteousness will never stand against an American who’s strength is derived from the pursuit of individual liberty and freedom…for all races and nationalities.

Andrew Jackson, the George Patton of his day.

This is a wonderful little book on a great American Patriot that every American should know about. He he embodied all the wonderful qualities of a great American general: decisiveness, toughness fierceness, and determination. If you loved the movie Patton with George C. Scott then you'll love this book!

A Lesson for a Know It All….

Something strange with the sound.

Not sure if it is the reader’s cadence or the recording but it seemed to “pulse” which became more noticeable as the reading went on. Not terribly distracting, just noticeable.
