Who won the Battle of New Orleans against the British?
General Andrew Jackson was in charge of the victory over the British in the battle of New Orleans.
This was an ironic victory as the battle was fought after the peace treaty ending the war of 1812 had been signed.
Though Andrew Jackson was the general the battle was won by an unlikely alliance of pirates seeking amnesty, frontiers men , militia and army regulars. The cannons contributed by the pirates were instrumental in the British defeat.
The victory over the British in the battle of New Orleans propelled Andrew Jackson to victory in his election to the Presidency.
