December 14, 1814 - desperate delaying action by a small squadron of five American gunboats, a tender, and one dispatch boat under the command of Lt. Thomas ap Catesby Jones. Facing them was a large flotilla of armed British barges carrying about 1,200 troops to begin invasion of New Orleans. With no wind, both sides rowed for position. The British overwhelmed the Americans and won the battle, but Jones bought Andrew Jackson valuable time.
