    1815 sketch of British troops encamped on Dauphin Island.

    The sketch is identified as "Rear Admiral (British Royal Navy) Malcolms tents on Dauphin Island."
    "After the unfortunate attach on New Orleans the army (British) was landed on Dauphin Island
    Feby. 8th. 1815, and remained there till the 5th April, when they received information of the peace.
    Sir Alexr Cochrane sailing on the 18th Febry. Left Adml Malcolm in command."
    This event followed the United States victory over the British in the Battle of New Orleans, near the end of the War of 1812.

    A scene showing several British boats approaching a bank on the Mississippi River in New Orleans on December 23, 1814, arriving with troops, ammunition, and provisions, an English flag flying at the top of a boat's mast, six men holding guns, four tents standing on the shore, two tetrahedral piles of cannonballs, and two cannon.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    I am absolutely fascinated by the gunboats of this period. I need to get my models painted and work up some rules for their use!
