    Colonel Jackson probably formed the company in 1814. The battle was January 8, 1815. So they didn't just appear in 1815. There had to be a history going back to the previous year.

    I think the way to teach a bunch of teens or tweens the date is to play the song. Maybe get them to sing along. You'd only have to do it once. Tell them they got organized in 1814 and the battle was 1815. Even the kids who don't care about history will remember the bacon and beans part, along with 1814 and 1815.
