"In this short history of General Andrew Jackson's Coast Campaign against the British during the War of 1812, I endeavor to give a truthful account of the part played by the Mississippi Territory and its soldiery in that conspicuous campaign. Many historians fail to surround the war in this part of the Republic with its actual environment and the read gets no more than a hazy idea of its locality. Excepting the defense of New Orleans, the scenes of action were principally in the Mississippi Territory. Without clear knowledge of this fact the reader cannot perceive the local color and would fail to grasp the relative significance of events in the growth and development of the States of the South.

"While I write with the purpose of emphasizing the activities of the troops of the Mississippi Territory and of drawing attention to many omissions and erroneous statements concerning them, yet it is my pleasant task to record the brilliant exploits and valor of all troops which took part, under General Andrew Jackson, in the campaign against the Creek Indians and the British during the War of 1812." - Preface.
