In 1814 I took a little trip...

So I'm sitting here, watching a History channel special on Andrew Jackson, and it occurs to me that all I know of the man comes from a few brief mentions in my American History to 1865 course, and the song "The Battle of New Orleans", which I often sing to put the kids to sleep at work. Although, honestly, that song does come in highly useful for remembering significant details.

It's rather interesting, honestly. And apparently a leader in the Creek Red Sticks who followed Tecumseh's ideas? 1/8th Creek Indian, the rest Scotch-Irish. Hey, I'm an 1/8th Mohawk, does that count?
