I think I've already shown this not long ago on a similar thread, TSgt Joe C., but here I go again! Forge Seat (the Samuel Crockett house) is located at the intersection of Crockett Road and Wilson Pike, Brentwood, Tennessee, less than four miles from where I live. Andrew Jackson and his army stopped there to purchase rifles on their way to fight the Battle of New Orleans!
I've passed by it many times, but have never toured it, as it's still occupied as a private residence.

Thanks for sharing the basics about the 1814 Battle of New Orleans TSgt Joe C.
In those days news traveled slowly by ship primarily.
Europe and England were primarily focused on defeating Napoleon Bonaparte. However Britain fought the fledgling USA in the war of 1812. Future President Andrew Jackson earned his claim to fame as soldier as he led a "motley assortment of militia fighters, frontiersmen, slaves, Indians and even pirates weathered a frontal assault by a superior British force, inflicting devastating casualties along the way."
