- View Full Item
Drawing of the plantation house that served as General Andrew Jackson's headquarters on the battlefield outside of New Orleans during the final phase of the War of 1812.
After the British forces landed south of New Orleans in late December 1814, General Andrew Jackson staved off the initial assault on the night of December 23. Afterwards, Jackson built a defensive line on the plains of Chalmette, a few miles south of the city of New Orleans. Jackson used the McCarty plantation house, depicted here, for his headquarters.
