Patricia Brady has authored many books, but her latest, A Being So Gentle, The Frontier Love Story of Rachel and Andrew Jackson, will be of particular interest to New Orleanians. In her book, Patricia brings Rachel Jackson to life and carries readers into the early frontier days of our fledgling democracy. Patricia explains why Andrew Jackson's January 8, 1815 victory at the Battle of New Orleans was of great significance, even though the British had already signed the Treaty of Gent weeks before. The author also tells us about some of her other works, including A Mixed Palette: Free Artists of Color of Antebellum New Orleans.
