At the Battle of New Orleans (fought after peace treaty with Europe was already signed) Jackson’s force of backwoodsmen, Indians, Negroes, and reformed pirates vanquished a British army twice its size, and some 2,000 dead or wounded Redcoats were left behind on the battlefield along with 500, who were American prisoners. One of the citizen soldiers under Jackson at the time was William Bullion, father of Elijah.
