Robert V. Remini's majestic writing has earned him a National Book Award and widespread recognition as the definitive biographer of Andrew Jackson. In The Battle of New Orleans, Remini's scholarly precision and flare for the dramatic help recount one of the most critical moments in United States history. By early 1815, America and Britain had negotiated an end to the War of 1812. However, word had yet to reach New Orleans, and tension in that area reached a fever pitch. Confident from recent victories over Napoleon, the British veterans attacked and expected to easily overrun the Americans. But a ragtag army under the command of Jackson'including free blacks, Indians, pirates, and townspeople'repelled the invasion and solidified America as a lasting democracy. This exciting re-telling of a crucial and colorful battle will thrill listeners. In the hands of veteran narrator Richard M. Davidson, 'Old Hickory' and his improbable soldiers are gloriously resurrected.
