In December 1814–January 1815, the British launched their last major effort of the waning War of 1812, an invasion of Louisiana intended to wrest New Orleans and much of the Gulf Coast and interior from the Americans. The Greatest Fury: The Battle of New Orleans and the Rebirth of America details that invasion and the last-minute efforts of American forces to meet and repel that threat. The result was not only a stunning victory that cemented the United States’ hold on the vast central portion of the continent, but it also made Andrew Jackson president and refocused American attention away from the East and toward the expanding opportunities of the unsettled West.
