The 2-Cent Stamp: An Andrew Jackson CocktailLandry’s Seafood House has fabulous views of both the Mississippi River and Jackson Square. At the heart of Jackson Square is a statue of Andrew Jackson, hero of the Battle of New Orleans. Every January, this famous battle is reenacted at Chalmette Battlefield. 
In 1863, during the Civil War, the Confederate government issued two Confederate postage stamps featuring Jackson’s portrait, a red 2-cent stamp and a green 2-cent stamp. This cocktail, a  spin-off of the Pimm’s Cup, was named in honor of Old Hickory, the  7th president of the United States.
