Jean Laﬁtte National Historical Park and PreserveAlthough the middle of the American line never faced a direct attack, its defenders inflicted many of the British casualties suffered during the battle. The cannons here were in an ideal position to fire on the main British force advancing against the rampart's swamp end. To the left were Tennesseans led by Major General William Carroll, who succeeded Andrew Jackson as head of the Tennessee militia. The Kentucky militia led by General John Adair reinforced this section; nearly a third of these men had arrived in New Orleans without weapons or winter clothes but had been outfitted by the city's residents.
