Jimmy Driftwood died last Sunday. Perhaps his name isn’t familiar, but you’ve heard at least of one the songs that he wrote: “The Battle Of New Orleans”, about the last battle of the War of 1812. A battle which took place in January 1815, two weeks after the end of the War of 1812. Can you say “Treaty of Ghent”? I knew you could. Obviously, CNN’s coverage wasn’t as widely available as it is now.

Of course, C.W. did his own cover of “The Battle of New Orleans”, on the album Roses For Mama.

And since I’m already in New Orleans, figuratively speaking, here’s a trip from Chicago: “City of New Orleans”, from C.W. McCall & Co.
