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.

Posted Image

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!

Posted Image

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.

Posted Image

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...


Posted Image

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.

Posted Image

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.

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.
