British Casualties at New Orleans
The unsuccessful attempt to gain possession of the enemy's lines near
New Orleans led to nearly 2000 casualties among the British forces, 23
December 1814 to 26 January 1815. The report of the losses gives the

years (estates 1891-1896) showing details of balances still remaining

Correspondences, have, in a great Measure, been the Occasion of deluding
your American Subjects into open Rebellion', lamenting 'the Misfortune
our American Brethren have brought upon themselves', and hoping 'that
the Loyalty which prevails here, will soon convince our Fellow-Subjects
in America of their Error, and bring them back to a just Sense of their
Duty and Allegiance'. The address was presented to the king at St
