Two weeks after the War of 1812 officially ended with the
signing of the Treaty of Ghent, U.S. General Andrew Jackson achieves the
greatest American victory of the war at the Battle of New Orleans.
In September 1814, an impressive American naval victory on Lake
Champlain forced invading British forces back into Canada and led to the
conclusion of peace negotiations in Ghent, Belgium. Although the peace
agreement was signed on December 24, word did not reach the British
forces assailing the Gulf coast in time to halt a major attack.
On January 8, 1815, the British marched against New Orleans, hoping that
by capturing the city they could separate Louisiana from the rest of the
Pirate Jean Lafitte, however, had warned the Americans of
the attack, and the arriving British found militiamen under General
ndrew Jackson strongly entrenched at the Rodriquez Canal. In two
separate assaults, the 7,500 British soldiers under Sir Edwardd Pakenhamwere unable to penetrate the U.S. defenses, and Jackson's 4,500 troops,
many of them expert marksmen from Kentucky and Tennessee, decimated the
British lines. In half an hour, the British had retreated, Generall
Pakenhamwas dead, and nearly 2,000 of his men were killed, wounded, or
missing. U.S. forces suffered only eight killed and 13 wounded..
Although the battle had no bearing on the outcome of the war, Jackson's
overwhelming victory elevated national pride, which had suffered a
number of setbacks during the War of 1812. The Battle of New Orleans was
also the last armed engagement between the United States and Britain..
Two volunteer battalions of free men of color fought in the Battle of
New Orleans in 1815. These men were the first black American troops to
receive pay, equipment, pensions, and bounty land grants equal to that
of their white counterparts..

Louisiana 200 Years (1812 - 2012)
The special meaning of
Louisiana Creole, however, is associated with free people of color (gens
de couleur libres), which was generally a third class of mixed-race
people who were concentrated in southern Louisiana and New Orleans.
"WE GON PASS A GOOD TIME, YEAH, CHER!
"Laissez les bon
temps rouler "is a cliché phrase of the local culture, which means "let
the good times roll." Nearly every village, town and city of any size
has a yearly festival, celebrating an important part of the local
economy. The majority of Cajun festivals include a fais do-do ("go to
sleep" in French) or street dance, usually to a live local band. Crowds
at these festivals can range from a few hundred to more than 100,000. 200-Free Things To Do
Mardi Gras colors
The official Mardi Gras colors in 1872. The
1892 Rex Parade theme Symbolism of Colors gave meaning to the colors:
purple represents justice; green, faith; and gold, power.
Tuesday is Mardi Gras, the festival New Orleans, Louisiana, is famous
for. "Gras" is French for fat and "Mardi" is French for Tuesday.
The annual festivities start on January 6, the Twelfth Night Feast
of the Epiphany, when the three kings are supposed to have visited the
Christ Child, and build to a climax on Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, which
always occurs on the day before Ash Wednesday. The parties and parades
will continue until Lent begins at the stroke of midnight on Tuesday.
Mardi Gras is a legal holiday in New Orleans. It is scheduled to
occur 46 days before Easter. Since the actual date Easter occurs
on changes yearly, Mardi Gras can happen on any Tuesday between
February 3 and March 9.
For two centuries it has been an
annual event in New Orleans, except during the two World Wars.
Courir de Mardi Gras (French for the "Mardi Gras Run") is still
held. Le Capitaine leads masked men on horseback to gather
ingredients for making the communal meal (usually a gumbo).
Participants gather in costume and move from home to home
requesting ingredients for the night's meal. This rural Mardi
Gras draws on traditions that are centuries old. Revelers sing
"Le Chanson de Mardi Gras", a song echoing medieval melodies.
The Cajun Mardi Gras Song, known in Cajun French as "La
Danse de Mardi Gras" or "La [Vieille] Chanson de Mardi Gras," is
a mainstay in Cajun Mardi Gras celebrations, and an important
piece in the repertoire of any traditional Cajun Music band.
