1814. Pugnacity post hoc

An American gen'ral named Andy
Whipped the British in manner quite handy
'Twas outside New Orleans
And it didn't mean beans --
War had ended yet still he was dandy!
Unbeknownst to Andrew Jackson, the Treaty of Ghent ending The War of 1812 had already been signed on the day (12/24/1814) the famed Battle of New Orleans began.  The battle lasted until January 18th, 1815.
