Jackson
ANDREW JACKSON


McIntosh
CHIEF WILLIAM McINTOSH
McIntosh was instrumental in signing away Georgia Creek lands, resulting in Georgia Creeks coming to live among the upper Creeks of Alabama. He led Jackson's Indian troups at Horseshoe Bend, earned the enmity of Alabama's Upper Creeks, and was eventually assasinated.


Gen. Thomas Woodward's Reminiscences

Memories of his many dealings with the Creeks in the late 1700s and early 1800s in Georgia and Alabama. Woodward fought under Jackson at Horseshoe Bend and later founded Archive.org Tuskegee in 1833, possibly named for nearby tribe of Taskigi. He owned the land where stood the Council Tree at Tuckabatchie and is said to to have given a discount on the rent of the tenant who complained that it shaded his crop.
