Subject: [WarOf1812] Battle of New Orleans date this January?
| Can anyone supply a solid date for the Battle of New Orleans event
| this coming January in New Orleans?
| We had assumed that using the last 2 years as a benchmark the date
| the event would be Jan. 6th. This may not be the case and the event
| may actually be Jan. 13th. Should the latter date be the actual one,
| our group may have to reevaluate our plans to attend as we have gone
| with the previous date to make arrangements.
| Please advise someone in the know.
| Jan. 6th is best for travelling with youth as it allows for the
| amount of time out of school for us travelling down from the great
| white north. The first week of January for most in school here is
| still a vacation week. We need to know a solid date before we
| any further.
