Re: [WarOf1812] Battle of New Orleans date this January?
- In a message dated 07/08/2006 11:35:57 Central Standard Time,
Can anyone supply a solid date for the Battle of New Orleans event
this coming January in New Orleans?
At the moment the simple answer is no. I was at a meeting with the NPS last
week discussing various things. The anniversary falls on a Monday and the
traditional time to hold the event would be the Friday Saturday following the
actual date so that would make it the 12th 13th however no firm decision has
been made. The daughters of 1812 will be having a commemoration in Jackson
Square on the 8th so if you wanted to spend a week in town you could certainly
come down for that and live it up until the next weekend.
