The Battle of New Orleans
January 8, 1815
The Battle of New Orleans was the last military engagement of the War of 1812, fought between the United States and Great Britain. It has been called “the needless battle,” as a peace treaty had been signed at Ghent, Belgium, 15 days earlier.
 
The British sent 8,000 troops to capture New Orleans. British commanders chose a poor route for attack, and U.S. artillery and riflemen inflicted a heavy toll. About 1,500 British soldiers were killed – including the commanding officer, General Sir Edward Pakenham. Few American lives were lost. General Andrew Jackson commanded the U.S. troops, who were aided by Jean Lafitte, the leader of a band of pirates based near the city.
