Wordless Wednesday - Commemorating The Battle of New Orleans

Commemorating the Battle of New Orleans:

As representatives from the United States and Great Britain were meeting in Ghent, Belgium, on December 24, 1814, to sign a treaty that would signal the end of the War of 1812, Andrew Jackson was still waging war, in a series of actions known as the Battle of New Orleans (23 December 1814 - 8 January 1815).
