The Battle of New Orleans

In 1814 we took a little trip,

Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip'.

We took a little bacon and we took a little beans,

An' we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin.

There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.

We fired once more and they began to runnin' on

Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico!

We looked down the river and we see'd the British come.

And there must have been a hundred of'em beatin' on the drum.

They stepped so high and they made the bugles ring.

We stood by our cotton bales and didn't say a thing.

Ol' Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise

If we didn't fire our muskets 'til we looked 'em in the eye

We held our fire 'til we see'd their faces well.

Then we opened up with squirrel guns and really gave 'em ... well...

Yeah, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles

And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.

They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em

Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

We fired our cannon 'til the barrel melted down.

So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round.

We filled his head with cannon balls, and powdered his behind

And when we touched the powder off, the gator lost his mind.

Ahh, The Battle of New Orleans. Americas false claim to victory in The War of 1812. :pir_laugh2:

There's a lot of stuff going on in this MoC. I see you added some pirates to make it accurate. But were are the freed slave soldiers?

The only CP members I see are:

Joey Lock

Hornblower (sorry if I got his name wrong)

Lt. Col. thok

Very nice MOC. The War of 1812 is so often overlooked in history.

Oh, and Emperor Claudius Rome, I think you mean America's correct claim to victory. You are just sour that we beat you two wars in a row and then had to bail you out in two more wars.

No, you lost the war. Technically, New Orleans wasn't part of the war. It was fought months after the treaty of Ghent was signed. And the Canadians kicked your Megabl%cks at Queenston heights.

If your speaking of WW2. Canada was in WW2 before you.

September 1939: Canada declares war on Germany.

You had to wait till December 11, 1941 to declare war.

And whos bigger? :pir_laugh2:

If it was not for the USA you would be speaking German right now, and correcting german spelling errors.

Just what did the Canadians gain from the war? Eh? :pir_laugh2: Well, I couldn't fit everybody in this size of a MOC, I might make a bigger version later.

Thanks, those are the lyrics from Johnny Horton's Battle of New Orleans.

Not being forced to be part of a thing we hated. Even the French Canadians :pir-sad: hated the Americans more than the Brits.

Who has the better health care? :pir-grin:

Horray! Eurobricks is the first forum I've been on so far to have non of the members call me a Smelly Maple Leaf :monkey::thumbup:

Hound Knight, will you make more copies of the hat for your future store?

I don't know, maybe.
