Revenge at Horseshoe Bend


Item 7 of 7 (11468)

On 27 March 1814, Major General Andrew Jackson's army of 3,300 men attacked Chief Menawa's 1,000 Red Stick Creek warriors in a horseshoe bend of the Tallapoosa River, in retaliation for the 1813 Ft. Mims Massacre and leading to the end of the Creek Indian War.
