Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans

When the British fought the young United States during the War of 1812, they knew that taking the mouth of the Mississippi River was the key to crippling their former colony. Capturing the city of New Orleans and stopping trade up the river sounded like a simple task–New Orleans was far away from Washington, out of sight and out of mind for the politicians.

In their now trademark fashion, authors Brian Kilmeade and Don Yeager will trace the development of Andrew Jackson’s character and bring the reader to the scenes of one of the most pivotal – and surprising – battles in American History.

The full title of the book is “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle that Shaped America’s Destiny”. Will be published by Sentinel NY (October 2017)/
