The last major land battle of the War of 1812 was fought just outside of New Orleans as the British were attempting to take the city and control the Mississippi river. This battle was an overwhelming victory for the US and the British casualties were astounding.
The story of this battlefield didn't end there, however, and another struggle was to ensue much later over the community of Fazendeville.
