War of 1812: In the Battle of New Orleans, [Jean Balthasar] Plauche?s Batallion d?Orleans of uniform companies was com posed of the elite of the native population of the city of French origin. Plauche?s Battalion, or Batallion d?Orléans , ran the whole distance from Bayou St. Jean to Chalmette to join the column of attack. Many of the battalion were del icate young Creole boys, yet they bore their heavy muskets and knapsacks with as much ease as practised veterans. As A lexander Walker, the laureate historian of the battle, says of them: ?With their gay and varied uniforms, characterize d by that good taste and regard for proportion and effect which distinguished the French race, with their bold, handsom e countenances and uniform size, the Orléans battalion was certainly a corps of which any commander might be proud. ? They were stationed at Spanish Fort and dashed off for the Place d?Armas, and, according to legend, ran the entir e distance. Here they joined the review of the troops by General Andrew Jackson.
