'A Bloodless Victory': The Battle of New Orleans in history and memory

Stoltz Bloodless Victory cover
Historian Joseph Stoltz revisits the Battle of New Orleans, the last major engagement of the War of 1812.

Once widely commemorated by Americans, the United States' victory over a British army outside New Orleans on 8 January 1815 is now largely forgotten on both sides of the Atlantic.

By analysing 200 years of music, literature, theatre, and film, Joseph F Stoltz III explores how generations of Americans revised the memory of the conflict to fit their political, cultural, and social needs.
