Sir Edward Pakenham

Sir Edward PakenhamBritish General
1778 -1815

The Duke of Wellington's brother-in-law, Sir Edward Pakenham served in Martinique before joining his famous relative in the Peninsula.

He fought at Fuentes de Onoro, but it was his performance at Salamanca that brought wide acclaim.

Given charge of the British operation at New Orleans, Pakenham mishandled the situation and led his troops to slaughter at the hands of the American defenders.

He was mortally wounded during the battle and died on the field.
