new orleans. 1/8/1815


there is nothing at bladensburg that mentions the battle although there is a
large cross called the peace cross in the middle of the battle area.
condos cover lowndes hill the american position and a childrens playground
the british.
the americans showed up for the next battle, east point and ft mchenry a
notable british failure.

but that is different from the british tradition of manning the boats and
deserting their allies.

at the battle of the thames in ontario 8/15/1813 the british commander,
general  henry procter, fled and left his indian allies to face the wrath of
the american army.
