Join us for a Sunday afternoon presentation with Brian Kilmeade featuring ANDREW JACKSON AND THE MIRIACLE OF NEW ORLEANS : The Battle That Shaped America's Destiny - in conversation with local historian Ronald Drez, autor of THE WAR OF 1812, Conflict and Deception: The British Attempt to Seize New Orleans and Nullify the Louisiana Purchase.
Brian Kilmeade, who has a gift for narrative and an intuitive feel for great stories, has written an exciting account of New Orleans and how that battle changed America down the decades.”
-Jon Meacham, author of Thomas Jefferson, American Lion, Destiny and Power, and Franklin and Winston.
“A riveting introduction to one of the seminal battles in U.S. History. The War of 1812 folk legend of Old Hickory rides high on his horse again in this engrossing overview for readers of all ages. Highly recommended!”
