The Battle of New Orleans (1814-1815) the last battle of the War of 1812, ended attempts of England to regain control of American Colonies that were lost in the American Revolution in the War for Independence. General Andrew Jackson, the Pirate Jean Lafitte and his men, along with local volunteers, defended the city of New Orleans! The final battle took place January 8, 1815. You can walk the breadth of the field, if you like, see the monuments and more; but the best part is what you don't see, and what you can imagine, especially if you are a boy! You can also see the plantation house of the Chalmet family, who were left in dire, financial ruin after the battles of New Orleans. They sold the house in 1817 to brothers Hilaire and Louis St. Amand, who were legally declared free people of color and allowed under the laws of Louisiana to own property as well as slaves. They repaired the house and restored the land to a sugar plantation at a time when sugar production in Louisiana was a rapidly growing industry. Written by award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan. with photographs by John D. Weigand, this 'learn to read' book is meant for boys, but girls are free to read it, of course! Look for the music video that goes with this book on the Bellissimavideo YouTube channel to further enhance the learning experience!
