There's no way we'll make it back on time for the battle!
Gather all the men and weapons you can find!
On December 24, 1814 there was a treaty signed to end the war of 1812.
However it did not reach New Orleans in time for the British Attack, on January 8 1815.
Meanwhile Andrew Jackson had gotten word of a British attack on the seaport and had begun preparing. They used weapons and people from the town of New Orleans no matter what or who they were.
I call it Yankee Doodle.
Andrew Jackson's army came together and built a 1 mile long dugout. He used weapons and men from slaves to pirates. Andrew Jackson would not retreat because he wanted revenge.
The battle was fought, lasting only 30 minites, Amercia reached a staggering victory. Also, Andrew Jackson was nicknamed "Old Hickory" for his heroism. The British lost 2000 men while amercia lost only 70.
Hey Old Hickory! We are winning!
After the battle, a second treaty was signed ending the war. Meanwhile, Andrew Jackson was called a hero and was greeted by the sounds of Yankee Doodle playing in his honor.
