The Creek War began as a regional civil conflict between different Native American tribes. But European nation's support to the Red Sticks, and territorial disputes involving the westward expansion of American settlers, quickly drew the American government into the conflict.
Horseshoe Bend was a turning point in the Creek War and more or less signaled its end. The Treaty of Fort Jackson, which ended the war, showed Andrew Jackson’s heavy hand towards both the Red Sticks and the allied Lower Creek Indians, and was a sad foreshadowing of how he would treat Native Americans during his presidency.
This 46 page booklet goes into depth about the almost-forgotten conflict and it’s now-famous combatants.
