William Charles Cole Claiborne (c.1772/75 – 23 November 1817)

William Charles Cole Claiborne

William C. C. Claiborne was born in Sussex County, Virginia. The date is unknown. His parents were Colonel William Claiborne and Mary Leigh Claiborne.

He studied at the College of William and Mary, then Richmond Academy.

Claiborne was appointed governor and superintendent of Indian affairs in the Mississippi Territory from 1801 through 1803.

William C. C. Claiborne was the first Governor of Louisiana and he supervised the transfer of Louisiana to U.S. control after the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. He governed the "Territory of Orleans" from 1804 through 1812, the year in which Louisiana became a state. He won the first election for Louisiana's state Governor and served through 1816, for a total of thirteen years as Louisiana's executive administrator.

After the Republic of West Florida won a short period of independence (from Spain) in 1810, Claiborne annexed the area to the Orleans Territory on the orders of President Madison, who decided to consider it as part of the Louisiana Purchase.

Claiborne was the first elected governor after Louisiana became a U.S. state, winning the election of 1812 against Jacques Villeré, and serving from 1812 through 1816. On the eve of the War of 1812 he sent interpreter Simon Favre to the Choctaws to attempt to keep them out of the war.[1]

After his term as governor, he was elected to the United States Senate, serving from March 4, 1817 until his death on November 23, 1817, which was 20 years to the day after his first day in Congress back in Tennessee.

Major General Jacques Phillippe Villeré

Jacques Phillippe Villeré

Jacques Villeré (April 28, 1761 – March 7, 1830) was the second Governor of Louisiana after it became a state. He was the first Creole and the first native of Louisiana to hold that office. In 1814-1815, he served with distinction in the Battle of New Orleans, as a major general commanding the 1st Division of the Louisiana militia. His men stood fast, assigned to the area near Lake Borgne and Bayou Dupre, as British forces approached New Orleans by sea.

The Villeré plantation, Conseil, located downriver from the city, was overrun by the British army. His family's home was destroyed and he lost 52 slaves, whom the British took aboard their ships and freed later.

Major General Philemon Thomas

General Philemon Thomas

Philemon Thomas (February 9, 1763 in Orange County, Virginia – November 18, 1847 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana) Philemon was born in Virginia. He served in the American forces during Revolutionary War and later moved to Kentucky. He was a member of Kentucky's Constitutional Convention and served in the state House and state Senate. In 1806 he moved to Louisiana. He commanded troops, and as General Thomas on September 23, 1810 captured the Spanish fort at Baton Rouge, commencing the West Florida Rebellion of 1810.

Major General Philemon Thomas served in the War of 1812 commanding the 2nd Division of the Louisiana militia. He died in Baton Rouge in 1830 and is interred there in the Baton Rouge National Cemetery

June 18th, 1812

War was declared with Great Britain. The day after the Senate followed the House of Representatives in voting to declare war against Great Britain, President James Madison signs the declaration into law–and the War of 1812 begins. The American war declaration had been called in response to the British economic blockade of France, the induction of American seaman into the British Royal Navy against their will, and the British support of hostile Indian tribes along the Great Lakes frontier.

As early as July of that year Louisiana furnished 44 volunteers under the command of Captain George Thompson Ross.

In October 1812, other volunteers had joined Captain Ross to form the 1st Battalion of Louisiana Volunteers. Officers were:

Major William Henry
Captains :
P. A. Rivery
John Mowry
Anatole Peychaud
Esquire Mirepoix
Ferdinand Amelung
L. de Marans
Abram Miller
1st Lieutenant's: Hugh Davis, George Russell, Noel G. Dupuy, Joseph Bige, J. P. Thebault, Francis Huet, Benjamin Bridges.
2nd Lieutenant's: David Hutchings, Adrian Fris Duval, John Koen, James McArther, John Files, W.R. Chambles, T.C. Vaughn.
Ensigns: Curtis Lewis, Patrick McClosky, Robert Steele, Lewis W. Brant, John Booth, ___Ferrar; Surgeon: Peter Lambert.

Also included in this battalion was Captain Turby E. Thomas' Company of Mississippi Territory Volunteers.

Most of the 1st Battalion of Louisiana Volunteers, after a year enlistment, were dismissed in December 1813 and the officers joined the 44th U.S. Regiment.

February 15th, 1813

Responding to a request from the War Department Tennessee Major General Andrew Jackson assembled 3000 enlistees in Tennessee of the 2nd Division of that state and transported them downriver to Natchez. Jackson was ordered to hold his troops at Natchez. Jackson received an order from the War Department to dismiss his men. He marched them back to TN. They then preceded to participate in the Creek Wars in the Mississippi Territory where they served the remaining eight months occupied in bloody battle with the Creek.

Also the Mississippi Territory Volunteers which was comprised of a number of Louisianans and the 1st Battalion of Louisiana Volunteers returned from the Creek Wars to Baton Rouge March 22nd, 1814.

Andrew Jackson

Jackson's Forces

On June 14 1814, Jackson was given commission of major general and appointment of military commander of the 7th Military District, headquarters in New Orleans. Major Henry Chotard was aide-de-camp to Major General Jackson and Assistant Adjutant General

Jackson would have a mixed force of regular soldiers, militia, Indians, Free Men of Color and Lafitte's privateers numbering about 4,000.

Tennessee militia, 2,700 strong, reached Natchez, December 13, under Gen. William Carroll, whom Judge George Poindexter joined as an aide. The Mississippi Dragoons under Maj. Thomas Hinds, arrived at New Orleans just in time to take part of the first battle, December 23. The Natchez Volunteer Riflemen organized under Capt. James C. Wilkins, reached the city on the day of the battle of January 8, 1815, and took position on the field. Maj. Chotard, a gallant Mississippian, served on the staff of Jackson, and was wounded by a shell near the Villere mansion.
November 18, 1814, General James Coffee was ordered to go directly to Baton Rouge on the Mississippi, which is about 60 miles below Natchez, and from the Tombigbee is about 250 miles. "I am now crossing the Bigby and will in two days take up the line of march for that place, with about eighteen hundred men, the balance of my command say about 1000 men will fall back and scour the Escambia and Cahaba rivers" "On the night of December 23rd, Gen Coffee sent a message to Jackson from fifteen miles above New Orleans, saying: "I am here with fifteen hundred armed and mounted men,"

Kentucky Regiments & the Battle of New Orleans

On October 14th, 1814, (Kentucky) Governor Issac Shelby issued a call for men for the New Orleans campaign, and under that call three regiments of Kentucky Detached Militia were brought into the field and organized for that campaign, namely:
1. Gabriel Slaughter’s Regiment…
2. Gray’s Regiment, organized November 10, 1814, and commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Presley Gray, who resigned and was succeeded by Lieutenant-Colonel John Davis. The Majors were James Johnson, William Walker and Zeba Holt. The regiment had ten companies, with a total strength of seven hundred and twenty-one officers and enlisted men.
3. Mitchusson’s Regiment

“These troops were commanded by Major General John Thomas, with Brigadier General John Adair as his Adjutant General. The total strength of the Kentucky militia raised for the New Orleans campaign was two thousand two hundred and fifty-six. To these must be added the officers and men of the Seventh Regiment of United States Infantry (who were recruited in Kentucky), at that time four hundred and sixty-five strong, bringing the grand total of Kentucky troops up to two thousand seven hundred and twenty-one. Of these troops sixteen hundred and forty were on the firing line, and engaged in the Battle of New Orleans. One thousand and eighty-one of the Kentucky militia did not take part in the battle because they could not be furnished with arms." [8]

The troop rosters for the New Orleans campaign, including the Battle of New Orleans, were compiled at various times after the battle, mostly in the 1950s and 1960s, from various sources. typed and hand written lists created over the years - were not digitally searchable. Additionally, due to the poor condition of the troop roster lists, they could not be scanned and made searchable. To ensure a better experience for its visitors, the National Park Service, along with the University of New Orleans and Midlo Center for New Orleans Studies, has made the available troop rosters digitally searchable. This enormous transcription project has been completed with the help of the University of New Orleans and the Midlo Center for New Orleans Studies. These institutions provided the internship and funding to complete the transcription process."[11]

The United States Daughters of 1812 led the efforts to complete the monument. Land for the monument was purchased in 1852, but decades of funding and construction problems followed, and the monument was not completed until 1908. Maintenance was turned over to the Chalmette Chapter, United States Daughter of 1812, and in 1939 the monument and surrounding land became part of the National Park Service as Chalmette National Historical Park, the first site of what would later become Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. The 100-foot-tall obelisk has become a major landmark in St. Bernard Parish.
