The Battle of New Orleans sets its scenes with an almost unbelievably colorful cast of characters - a happenstance coalition of militia-men, regulars, untrained frontiersmen, free blacks, Indians, townspeople, and of course, Jackson himself. His glorious, improbable victory will catapult a once-poor, uneducated orphan boy into the White House and forge the beginning of a true nation.

"Todd provides a spirited, unvoiced presentation. He reads in a clear, distinct voice that is easy to follow. The dramatic text needs no further embellishment." (KLIATT)
"Todd skillfully handles this well-documented history of the final battles of the War of 1812." (Booklist)
