In volume two, "The Battle of New Orleans" shows how General Andrew Jackson led a motley group of Creoles, freeborn blacks, local Native Americans and poorly armed frontiersmen to defeat the British army effectively ending the War of 1812, while "Andrew Jackson: A Man for the People" explores the life of Andrew Jackson, known as "Old Hickory", during his Presidency, which he won on the strength of a reputation earned during the War of 1812. "The Ironclads" examines the development of the iron clad warship, which represented a radical advance over all earlier ships, effectively rendering the wooden navies of the world obsolete overnight. "Surviving an 1812 Battleship" provides a look at what ordinary sailors faced when engaging the enemy inside an 1812 battleship.
