Never thought I'd see a video of this

Johnny Horton - The Battle of New Orleans. The part about the 'gator is pretty funny.


  1. My wife's middle school history teacher played this video in class prior to covering the War of 1812. A handful of excited kids wanted to know if they really used gators as cannons back then.

  2. I remember that performance; I saw it live on TV when I was a kid, on the Ed Sullivan Show.
