New Documentary on the Battle of New Orleans

"Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans, January 8, 1814," mural by Ethel Magafan, at the Recorder of Deeds building, built in 1943. 515 D St., NW, Washington, D.C.Thursday marks the bicentennial of the Battle of New Orleans, so I’m running a series of posts commemorating the event this week.

First up is a new documentary on the battle. It’s straightforward, so don’t expect Ken Burns. But I thought it was solid, and I learned some things about the military side. Enjoy!
