A PARADISE OF BLOOD:The Creek War of 1813-14

A PARADISE OF BLOOD:The Creek War of 1813-14
by Weir III, Howard

2-216490

In 1811, a portion of the Creek Indians who inhabited a vast area across Georgia, Alabama, and parts of Florida and Mississippi, interpreted an earth tremor as a sign that they had to return to their traditional way of life. What was an internal Indian dispute soon became engulfed in the greater War of 1812 to become perhaps the most consequential campaign of that conflict.

At immediate stake in what became known as the Creek War of 1813-14 was whether the Creeks and their inconstant British and Spanish allies or the young United States would control millions of acres of highly fertile Native American land. The conflict's larger issue was whether the Indian nations of the lower American South-the Creek, Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw-would be able to remain in their ancestral homes. Includes 30 b/w illustrations and maps.

The Creek War was marked by savagery, such as the murder of hundreds of settlers at Fort Mims, Alabama - the largest massacre of its kind in United States history - and fierce battles, including Horseshoe Bend, where more Indian warriors were confirmed killed than in any other single engagement in the long wars against the Indians.

Many notable personalities fought during the conflict, including Andrew Jackson, who gained national prominence for his service, Sam Houston, War Chief William Weatherford, and Davy Crockett. When the war was over, more than 20 million acres had been added to the US, thousands of Indians were dead or homeless, and Jackson was on his way to the presidency.

The war also eliminated the last effective Native American resistance to westward expansion east of the Mississippi, and by giving the United States land that was ideal for large-scale cotton planting, it laid the foundation for the Civil War a generation later.
