Early in the morning on December 23, 1814, a British invasion force landed in the Louisiana bayou. When they were eight miles downriver from the city of New Orleans, they stopped. The next day, Andrew Jackson attacked… and the rest is history.

** At one point Margaret Brougham, née Margaret Mercer Elphinstone, asks, "This man I’ve gone and married — does he really plan all these things in advance? Or does he just sit and wait for his enemies to trip over their own feet, then leap up and shout ‘[[DeathNote Exactly as planned]]!’"

** A British officer failing to withdraw from enemy territory after the signing of a peace treaty? Well, there was Castine, Maine.
** A U.S. state governor in time of war preparing to make a separate peace with the enemy and cede U.S. territory? This really happened. In our history. [[KarmaHoudini And he wasn’t punished.]]

* FeedTheMole: Played for laughs. Honoré de Balzac and friends have a lot of fun doing this to Browne (see below). As an AH.com [[InJoke]], they pretend to be sailors on board the "Lion de la Mer." [[spoiler:Talleyrand also does this, with much more serious intent.]]

* Roboteching: Subverted. Congreve rockets do this a lot, but it’s a bug, not a feature. You can aim them at the enemy, but where they'll be when they blow up is anybody's guess.
