In recognition of the 200th anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans, several local authors have released new literature re-examining the significance of this historic event. Most notable among them is Morgan Molthrop's Andrew Jackson's Playbook: 15 Strategies for Success.  Molthrop, a local businessman and cultural tourism guru, has framed the Battle of New Orleans within the cultural context of the city, defining relationships between Andrew Jackson's New Orleans and our contemporary city.  This fresh perspective on one of the most significant events in our history can certainly help us to re-examine our more recent history and how we shape our city in the future.
