5903. NEW ORLEANS, Battle of.—[further continued] .

It may be thought that
useless blood was spilt at New Orleans, after
the treaty of peace had been actually signed.
I think it had many valuable uses. It proved
the fidelity of the Orleanese to the United
States. It proved that New Orleans can be defended
both by land and water; that the Western
country will fly to its relief (of which ourselves
had doubted before); that our militia are
heroes when they have heroes to lead them
on; and that, when unembarrassed by field
evolutions, which they do not understand, their
skill in the fire-arm, and deadly aim, give them
advantage over regulars.—
To W. H. Crawford. Washington ed. vi, 420. Ford ed., ix, 504.
