198 years ago today General Andrew Jackson gave the British one last shove at the Battle of New Orleans, the final major battle of the War of 1812. ¬†Looking back at the War of 1812 Bicentennial, I can’t imagine a better way to kick off the commemoration than with a themed dog parade, which we enjoyed on Mackinac Island during its Lilac Festival in June. ¬†Woof!
