A bit early for this blog but have a look anyway - I am not sure about it - could be fun
Gripping historical drama set in the turbulent 1680s. This sequel to The Devil's Whore takes place on both sides of the Atlantic, as two young men and two young women commit their lives to a fairer future with blood, passion and urgency.

Here's what Don says on his FB page
Weeks before his stunning victory at the battle of New Orleans , General Andrew Jackson decided to attack the camp of the approaching British vanguard. On the night of Dec 23, 1814 Jackson lead a three pronged assault in the evening fog . Jackson allegedly exclaimed , "By the Eternal they shall not sleep on our soil." A vicious hand to hand night battle ensued in the open fields and woods , part of which involved a flanking attack by Coffee's Tennessee Militia which is depicted here. Although the American were repulsed , the attack made the British more cautious to advance , enabling Jackson time to complete his defensive line in preparation for the main British push against the city. Here we see the Tennesseans in hand to hand fighting with the British 85th Regiment of Foot.
