On this Day….

On this day, February 2, 1815, the Louisiana legislature drafts a resolution to thank the men who had defended the city during the New Orleans campaign. They mention the commanding officers by name—except for Maj. Gen. Andrew Jackson. The exception wasn’t an oversight; the legislators were still annoyed by Jackson’s attempt to shut down the legislature in December 1814.

About Ramona

I'm a retired high school teacher and an observer of human nature. Living history is my passion, especially 18th century reenactment. I love life, have fun living and look forward to every day; until it kicks me in the butt. Then there's the next day to look forward to. I'm a transplanted Yankee, born in New Jersey, living in East Tennessee and have a mother who I adore and who lives with me. I've been described as being a good listener, with a quirky sense of humor and one who walks on her own path. My friends mean a lot to me and I cherish all the people who I meet.
