This is actually an awesomely done student school project. It is silent at the beginning for the introduction, but it gets MUCH better! (About 30 secs in.) Please Enjoy!   8

Time for some classic #Rockabilly & #historical #ballad song with #JohnnyHorton! (The War of 1812- aka a major War that we Americans tend to forget happened between our Rev. War & our Civil War. ;'). ----------- From Wikipedia: "The Battle of New Orleans" is a song written by Jimmy Driftwood. The song describes the 1815 Battle of New Orleans from the perspective of an American soldier; the song tells the tale of the battle with a light tone and provides a rather comical version of what actually happened at the battle. It has been recorded by many artists, but the singer most often associated with this song is Johnny Horton. His version scored number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1959 ."   1
