On the 8th of January 1815 a combined force of: U.S. Regulars and Marines, Louisiana Militia, Volunteers from Kentucky, Tennessee and others under the command of Major General Andrew Jackson resoundingly defeated a superior British force advancing on the City of New Orleans. This breathtaking painting by Artist Historian Don Troiani shows the determined attack on Jackson's right flank against the advanced Levee Redoubt by the British light infantry companies of the 7th (Royal Fusiliers), 93rd Sutherland Highlanders and a company of the 43rd Light Infantry. The redoubt was defended by a company of the 7th U.S. Infantry and a detachment of the 44th, manning two guns. Although the British were successful in taking the redoubt with great loss, it could not be held for long as it faced a withering fire from the American main line directly behind. With the failure of the main British assault the few survivors of the original 250 attackers surrendered or escaped. This last major battle of the War of 1812 was actually fought after the treaty of peace had been signed.
As always this painting reflects tremendous research from the uniforms of the various British
regiments to the Congreve rockets flying at daybreak over head. Even original British belt plates
excavated on a campsite after the battle, were studied to insure the most trivial bits of insignia
were exactingly rendered.
It is accompanied by a historical fact sheet written by acclaimed historian James L. Kochan.
