bon-graphicEducators, take your students to the battlefield where 200 years ago a small force of American volunteers defeated the mighty British Army in THE BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS. Students will learn how General Andrew Jackson brought together a diverse group of volunteers who successfully defended the city of New Orleans from a British invasion, preserved American control of the city and the Mississippi River, and kept the Louisiana Purchase intact. We’ll travel to the actual battlefield in Chalmette, Louisiana to learn how the battle was won, challenges the soldiers faced, equipment used, and how the Mississippi River played a major role in the battle.
