Betty The Battle of New Orleans (103* d) RE: The Battle of New Orleans 23 Nov 99


I grew up in Arkansas and visited Jimmy Driftwood's house to listen to him sing as a child--he always said he wrote that song as a teaching aid in American History. Not grammar, I hope! The old fiddle tune he used is "The Eighth of January," which is the date that the Battle of NO took place: Jan. 8, 1815.
