When the British fought the young United States during the War of 1812, they knew that taking the mouth of the Mississippi River was the key to crippling their former colony. Capturing the city of New Orleans and stopping trade up the river sounded like a simple task - New Orleans was far away from Washington, out of sight and out of mind for the politicians.
What the British didn't count on was the power of General Andrew Jackson. A formidable military leader with a grudge against the British and a heart for the common man, he rallied the divided inhabitants of New Orleans, bringing together Frenchmen, Native Americans, freed slaves, pirates, and Kentucky woodsmen.
In their now trademark fashion, Kilmeade and Yaeger will trace the development of Jackson's character and bring the listener to the scenes of one of the most pivotal - and surprising - battles in American history.

This was new to me War 1812
I learned about the War of 1812 in school, vaguely. This was fascinating information! I listened to it in 2 Days, unusual for me:) Brian’s reading of it was great, full of expression & enthusiasm. I would like my grandchildren to read this book in a few years. Actually, I think every American should read it. It reminded us how Americans all worked together for this magnificent nation called The United States of America. Certainly, still learning & growing, but I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else! Most of the world would like to live here, too. We are not forced to live here, but blessed to do so.
