For the next six weeks, Jacksons ragtag troops of militiamen, free blacks, Indians, and pirates furiously defended the city against Britains elite army, led by Lieutenant General Sir Edward Pakenham.

The Generals provides a detailed and intimate look at both the personal and professional lives of Jackson and Pakenham, demonstrating how their paths twisted and turned until they inevitably met each other on the battlefield outside of New Orleans.Benton Rain Patterson leads readers through the captivating tale of a central battle in American military history and subsequently brings the biographies of these two great generals into full light.
