The spot where Jackson had built his defenses was a natural bottle-neck between the river & the Rodriguez Canal & if the British were determined to pass they would have to charge the bottleneck. In one brilliant move, "Old Hickory" had taken the advantage away from an overwhelming army & forced it into a death charge. As the forthcoming lines of British fell, they created literal stumbling blocks for the men behind them. Tripping over their fallen comrades in the obscurity, face-on into a swarm of bullets, British gallantry waned.

Dominique Youx's & other American artillery pieces boomed & tore large swatches in whatever order still existed in the enemy ranks. General Pakenham, seeing the discombobulation, tried vainly to restore confidence. "Onward!' he cried, "onward, lads!" until a bullet silenced him forever. The few Highlanders & Dragoons who reached the American ramparts had their chests blown in by the ferocious return of a dozen Yankee pistoleers.

After an hour of hell, these Englishmen who had charged so gallantly against Napoleon's forces at Waterloo, turned tail and ran.

Arrrgghh....the sights, sounds, & smells of war are not a good thing. The only time it is a "good" thing is when it happens not to be yer loved ones, neighbors, & town folk layin' there. Garrr....comes back tomorrow to see if the deal between General Jackson & Jean Lafitte is honored....thank ye fer yer time & vote fer this ole' pirate parrot! So says I, SamIAm
