Fox and friends book interviews
Fox & Friends Host Brian Kilmeade Wrote the Book on Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New OrleansAnd the battle was certainly miraculous—it lasted under 45 minutes, led by a dysentery-ridden Jackson, yet the American casualties were minuscule compared to the damage U. I wanted to focus on this battle because it was so consequential to the future of our country, and the fact that we won it, with a general with almost no experience but with great instincts and leadership, who was as patriotic as anybody because he felt like he was raised by the entire country. You have a guy who rallied together a uniquely American army of Choctaw Indians, free men of color, Tennessee militia, Kentucky long rifles who were sharp shooters, and he put them together with pirates and marines and they were able to wipe out an army that destroyed Napoleon in under 45 minutes. I met some unbelievable historians, Ron Drez and Doug Brinkley and Jon Meacham , and they showed me the paperwork that revealed that Britain had every intention of holding onto New Orleans. And they never really believed that Napoleon had the right to sell us the Louisiana Purchase. So they were going to sign that treaty, wipe out whatever armies were in their way and hold New Orleans. And if you hold that city, you control the mouth of the Mississippi.
