Thread Name: The Battle of New Orleans
Subject: RE: The Battle of New Orleans
"Pakenham," the General in charge of the British force attacking New Orleans? Not "Ole Hickory?" Didn't they go down to New Orleans with "Col. Jackson" or "Gen. Jackson" instead of "Pakenham"? I know Donegan was a Brit, but you'd think he'd at least not mix up the British and American commanders.
