Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans

Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America's DestinyAndrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America’s Destiny by Brian Kilmeade
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The story of Andrew Jackson and the Battle of New Orleans will always be remembered by Johnny Horton’s song. If you’ve never heard it, check it out on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VL7XS…

Brian Kilmeade does a nice job of filling out the background to the song, what it took to get Old Hickory in the right place at the right time. And then the details for what was, by all measurements, an impossible victory. Well worth reading.
