(Image:  The Battle of New Orleans by Eugene Louis Lami, 1839)  "The fighting in Louisiana was really a series of battles for New Orleans, lasting from December 1814 through January 1815....The American victory in the Gulf region forced the British to recognize United States claims to Louisiana and West Florida and to ratify the Treaty of Ghent, which ended the war. The Battle of New Orleans also marked the state's political incorporation into the Union."
