The Hunters of Kentucky

I s'pose you've read it in the prints, how Packenham attempted. To make Old Hickory Jackson wince, but soon his schemes repented; For we with rifles ready cocked, thought  such occasion lucky, And soon around the general flocked the hunters of Kentucky.

A popular song celebrating the American victory at New Orleans. Used by Andrew Jackson in his 1828 campaign for president.

Welcome to New Orleans 1815 

Dear visitor,
WELCOME to our web page for the commemoration  of the 200th anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans!  What we  have planned for you is a memorable, fitting, and fun time in the historic city of New Orleans and in St.Bernard Parish where the original battle was fought.
In 1814 and 15 the 7th INF distinguished itself during the New Orleans Campaign,  Now 200 years later The 7th US Infantry Living History Association is proud to be sponsoring and helping  lead the way during the commemoration.  We are also excited to be partnering with several other organizations to give you a series of events you will long remember.
Our program  tentatively begins on Tuesday January 6, 2015 and lasts through and including Sunday January 11. Two special events are still in the planning stage.  So at this time, until all the proverbial ducks are in a row, we can't announce them publicly.  But they will be a great way to begin and end your time with us.
In Cajun French there is a word: lagniappe. It means "a little something more".  That word will aptly describe our series of events.  We have a little something more for you to make your time more memorable.  From the Ballroom to the Ballad Room, to the Battlefield to the Banquet Hall, and yes it is New Orleans, the Bar Room, there is lagniappe for all!  Attend one event or attend them all!  You will have a variety of choices.
We will be updating our page regularly as we finalize our plans.  So check back with us often.
If you have questions you can contact me directly at . If I don't have an answer I will forward your question to someone who will.
Again we extend the warmest welcome to you as you journey through our web page and learn about our Grand Finale of the War of 1812 Bicentennial.
