Battle of New Orleans
During the Battle of New Orleans, First Louisiana Militia engineer Jean-Hyacinthe Laclotte sketched the action on the battlefield at Chalmette plantation. From these drawings he developed a composition titled "View of the Battle of New Orleans" (1815), believed to be the most accurate depiction of the clash between British Redcoats and American troops under the command of Gen. Andrew Jackson.
