Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

On Jan. 8, 1815, American militiamen under the command of General Andrew Jackson won the biggest victory of the War of 1812 against an invading British force of nearly twice its size at the Battle of New Orleans. The British had close to 2,000 casualties, while only eight Americans were killed and 13 wounded. Ironically, due to the slow speed of communications at the time, the victory came two weeks after the war of 1812 officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Ghent.
