Battle of New Orleans
A dramatic battle scene depicts red-coated British soldiers storming the American line on January 8, 1815. Jackson and two other mounted officers are surveying the defenses, and an artillery crew prepares to fire in the foreground. The sails of the USS Louisiana can be seen in the background, behind cheering American troops. Jackson's fortifications are erroneously shown as being constructed of cotton bales rather than earth and timbers.
