The Battle of New Orleans
By Anthony Pham and Matthew Alt
What Was The Battle Of New Orleans?
What Was the Outcome?
Who and What Was There?
Confederacy- 3000 men, 3 ironclad warships, ten gunboats, and a few smaller vessels all under the command of General Mansfield Lovell (Pictured to the right)
Because the Union had a significant more amount of troops and supplies than the Confederates, this led to their victory. They easily dominated the port and inevitably controlled it.
