This week we’re joined by Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade. Brian just released his fifth book, Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans, co-written with Don Yaeger.
The War of 1812 saw America threatened on every side. Encouraged by the British, Indian tribes attacked settlers in the West, while the Royal Navy terrorized the coasts. By mid-1814, President James Madison’s generals had lost control of the war in the North, losing battles in Canada. Then British troops set the White House ablaze, and a feeling of hopelessness spread across the country.
Into this dire situation stepped Major General Andrew Jackson. A native of Tennessee who had witnessed the horrors of the Revolutionary War and Indian attacks, he was glad America had finally decided to confront repeated British aggression. But he feared that President Madison’s men were overlooking the most important target of all: New Orleans.
In CrossPolitic news, we discuss DACA, what is it all about and what should the Christian response look like.
