The War of 1812 is frequently known as the Second War of Independence. The war proved to American citizens that they could hold their ground on land and sea against the combined British, Native American, and British Canadian forces. In preparation for the attack on New Orleans, Andrew Jackson arrived to build defenses and lead the disparate defenders: 4,700 men, including 462 free men of color, 52 Choctaw warriors, and the forces of notorious pirate and smuggler Jean Lafitte. The decisive victory in the Battle of New Orleans proved to the American people that the United States was military power with which to be reckoned.
