History Happenings January: War of 1812 and the Civil War

Occasionally we like to highlight historical events that coincide with our travels and tour offerings. In this case, two significant events occurred in January that we feature in our tours for visits and discussions. They are related to other happenings during the Civil War and one vital closing episode from the War of 1812, the Battle of New Orleans, that took place right downriver from the city of New Orleans and perilously close to home for the folks who lived here at the time.
