On the 8th of January 1815 a combination force of: U.S. Regulars and marines, Louisiana Militia, Volunteers of Kentucky, Tennessee and other 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 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 assaulted 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.
