Guests will have the opportunity to engage in discussion with Kilmeade, followed by a book signing and meet-and-greet.
The first book signing event will take place on Friday, November 10 at 2 p.m. at the Books-A-Million in Orange Park Mall located at 1910 Wells Road in Jacksonville, Florida. The second event will occur Saturday, November 11 at 4 p.m. at the Red Mountain Theatre Company Cabaret Theatre at 301 19th Street North in Birmingham, Alabama.

In “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America’s Destiny,” Kilmeade shares knowledge of a little-known act in United States history during the War of 1812. Indian tribes, with encouragement from the British, attacked settlers in the West while the Royal Navy terrorized the coasts. In August 1814, when British troops invaded Washington, D.C. and set fire to the Capitol building and the White House, a feeling of hopelessness dominated the country. It was at this point that Tennessee native Major General Andrew Jackson led a compilation of frontier militiamen, French-speaking natives, Cherokee and Chocktaw Indians (tribes not aligned with Britain), freed slaves and even pirates against a far superior enemy force in the confusing terrain of the Louisiana bayous during the battle for New Orleans.
Kilmeade is a Fox News “FOX & Friends” morning show co-host and New York Times best-selling author. This is his third history-focused book with co-author Don Yaeger. The first two, “George Washington’s Secret Six” (2013) and “Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates” (2015), spent a combined 37 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, culminating in sales of over a million books. Kilmeade grew up and lives in Massapequa, New York.

Guests who wish to attend the events in Florida will not require a ticket, but must purchase the new book at the event store location.
