File:Battle of New Orleans.jpg


English: The Battle of New Orleans. General Andrew Jackson stands on the parapet of his makeshift defenses as his troops repulse attacking Highlanders. (The Highlanders are incorrectly depicted wearing kilts and feather bonnets as the 93rd Highlanders for this campaign had been ordered to wear tartan trousers and plain bonnets - in fact the uniforms shown are more Victorian in style than Georgian. See, "Historical Records of the 93rd Sutherland Highlanders", Roderick Hamilton Burgoyne, London, 1883.)

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of an original two-dimensional work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain This work is in the public domain in the United States because it was published (or registered with the U.S. Copyright Office) before January 1, 1923.

Public domain works must be out of copyright in both the United States and in the source country of the work in order to be hosted on the Commons. If the work is not a U.S. work, the file must have an additional copyright tag indicating the copyright status in the source country.

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain, and that claims to the contrary represent an assault on the very concept of a public domain". For details, see Commons:When to use the PD-Art tag.
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain.
