Summary
In the waning days of 1814, a fleet of Royal Navy warships closed in on the waters below New Orleans. The gateway of the Mississippi River and America's heartland, it was defended by General Andrew Jackson with an 'army' of farmers, merchants, backwoodsmen, smugglers, slaves, and Choctaw Indians, many of them unarmed. Davis tells the story of one of the most impactful battles ever fought on American soil-- a tale of resilience, bravery, and uncommon heroism -- adapted from jacket
