    In 1816 William McCarty published History of the American War, of eighteen hundred and twelve... as one of the first histories of the War of 1812. The book was the inspiration for McCarty publishing William E. West's (1788-1857) depiction of the Battle of New Orleans. The engraver of the McCarty print was Joseph Yeager (1792-1859) an active engraver and print seller from Philadelphia.

    The print shows the British perspective, depicting the carnage of their defeat and the death of their commander, Major-General Sir Edward Packenham.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
