Winning the Battle of New Orleans
January 8, 1815
"Remember New Orleans I say, Where Jackson show'd them Yankee play, And beat them off and gain'd the day, And then we heard the people say Huzza! For Gen'ral Jackson."
The song "The Eighth of January" became a favorite tune for square dancing even into the 1940s. Perhaps members of your family have heard the song. Invite them to listen to the traditional fiddle tune "The Eighth of January" and together yell "Huzza!"
