War of 1812 Naval Officer. Commanded US Naval forces around New Orleans during the war. In September 1814, he refused a request by Gen. Andrew Jackson to send his forces from New Orleans to Mobile. This decision was a fateful one, for in January 1815 the presence and action by Patterson's gunboats in conjunction with Jackson's ground forces at the Battle of New Orleans helped secure an American victory.
