"A slight breeze moved the fog
away before him," Harry Albright states in NewOrleans - The
Battle of the Bayous. "There were the British Redcoats heading
straight for the point he had determined would be their objective...The
red-coated infantry with their white cross belts and glittering bayonets, and
the Scottish regiment with its tartan plaided trousers, created an unforgettable
picture of war."
"Gentlemen, the British are below the
city! We mist fight them tonight."
-- Gen. Andrew Jackson
The site where Jackson had assembled his troops
was a natural bottle-neck between the Mississippi river and the Rodriguez
Canal. This forced the British to charge into the fog and smartly
position US troops. As the each successive line of
British fell, they created unseen fog covered obstacles for the men behind
them. Tripping over their fallen comrades as a swarm of bullets cut their
lines to shreads British gallantry waned.
British General Pakenham, seeing the awkwardness
of the British advance, tried to restore confidence.
"Onward!’ he cried, "onward, lads!" until a bullet silenced
him forever. The Britishturned
retreated and Jackson won a great battle.
Andrew Jackson autograph letter signed, written in
the third person to Daniel Garland, promising an order to release a fugitive
from the Washington County jail; one page on watermarked wove; June 15, 1829.
