The Indian War of 1812. Battle of Horseshoe Bend
Contributed by Janet Piccola
In March, 1814, General Andrew Jackson mobilized the Tennessee Militia, made up of Volunteers from the East and West Tennessee Militias and the Thirty-Ninth U.S. Infantry for a full-scale campaign against the Red Sticks. General Jackson's army totaled about 3,000 men. Jackson's army left Fort Williams on the Coosa River (Mississippi Territory) and marched 52 miles through the forest in three days. They made camp six miles north of Horseshoe Bend. The Red Stick's had built a barricade on the river, which eventually trapped them once Jackson's soldiers surrounded them. Over 800 Red Sticks died as a result of the Battle. General Jackson's dead and wounded were taken back to Ft. Williams. The following is a listing of the soldiers who were buried at Ft. Williams.. The original site of Fort Williams is now under Lay Lake in Coosa County, Alabama. The headstones and the monument to the soldiers were moved to a new location 57 miles north of Horseshoe Bend Military Park.
(History of the battle fron Tennessee Archives)
Battle of Horseshoe Bend
(27 March 1814)
The Creeks occupied an hundred-acre section of land in the U-shaped bend of the Tallapoosa River, fortified by an elaborately-constructed breastwork of logs that reached from one side of the river to the other. Behind the fortifications were nearly a thousand warriors and a village, located at the bend of the river, of their families. The fact that the Creeks did not remove the women and children from the site, as was their custom prior to battle, indicated either that they felt secure behind the fortifications or that the battle would be a fight to the finish.

Jackson’s force, after leaving adequate troops to man the various forts in the territory, amounted to about 3,000 men. The army reached Tohopeka in the early morning hours of 27 March. General Coffee and his brigade of mounted gunmen, along with a contingency of Cherokees and allied Creeks, were dispatched to cross the Tallapoosa about three miles below Tohopeka in order to surround the Creeks and prevent any chance of escape. Jackson marched the bulk of the army to the front of the Creek stronghold. Around 10:30 a.m. Jackson’s two artillery pieces began to fire at the fortified wall of the Creek breastworks, but the cannonade proved to be ineffective. By noon, Jackson determined that the works would have to be taken by storm.

At about the same time, impatient Cherokees under Coffee began to swim the Tallapoosa to capture the canoes the Creeks intended to use as a means of escape. Using the captured canoes, the Cherokees and some of Coffee’s men managed to cross the river and assail the Creeks from the rear.

Jackson’s assault on the breastworks, led by the 39th U.S. Infantry and Tennessee militia, proved successful after a brief, but severe, contest. As the Creeks found themselves being attacked from the front and behind, the fortifications they had placed so much faith in became their graveyard. The battle soon took on the aspects of a massacre as the Creek warriors asked for no quarter and fought with savage desperation. The slaughter continued until nightfall and, at the end of the day, 557 Red Sticks lay prostrate on the field of battle. Hundreds more were killed by Coffee’s men as they tried to make their escape by crossing the Tallapoosa River. In all, nearly 900 warriors are said to have perished in what is considered to be the most devastating defeat of Native Americans in North American history. The official tally of American casualties was 32 killed and 99 wounded -- the friendly Indians lost 23 killed and 47 wounded. A list of American killed and wounded can be found in the Nashville Whig (11 May 1814).

After the defeat at Horseshoe Bend, bands of starving Creeks surrendered themselves during the spring and summer of 1814. In August 1814, the Treaty of Fort Jackson forced the Creeks to forfeit over 20,000,000 acres of land to the United States in retribution for the Creek War. The fact that much of this land was taken from Creeks that had allied themselves with American troops during the war made no difference to the land-hungry frontier populace. Within five years white settlers overran the region and the state of Alabama was formed. The demise of the Creek Nation had begun.

As a reward for his success in the Creek War, Jackson was commissioned a major general in the regular army (May 1814). After concluding negotiations with the Creeks, he turned his attention to the regions of Mobile and Pensacola. Mobile, lately in possession of the United States, was a possible point for the British to launch a campaign against New Orleans. Pensacola, in the Spanish-held province of West Florida, became a place of refuge for the remnants of the Red Sticks who sought arms and supplies from the Spanish and/or British to renew hostilities against the Americans. Great Britain planned to use the renegade Creeks to harass the southern frontier, thus keeping American forces occupied, while operations against New Orleans were conducted. Jackson’s victory at Horseshoe Bend stymied these plans, but there were still enough fugitive Creeks in Florida to warrant Jackson’s attention. His concern was heightened when the British, along with Red Stick allies, made an attempt to capture Fort Bowyer at Mobile Point in mid-September 1814. Although the attack was repulsed, it provided an excuse for Jackson to move against Spanish Pensacola, where the British task force originated.

William was paid $32.35 for service ($8.00 per month) and additional $80.65 for that of his horse. And was given a grant # 1017399 dated 18th April 1848. It looks like he used the grant in Murry Co. GA., for 80 acres of land valved at $200.00 on 1850 cansus.

Notes for JOHN SCOTT JAMES:
NOTES:
John and Clarendon married sisters, who were Quakers. An item from the Monroe
County Deed Book A says that "17 Oct 1835 George C Harris deeded to John James
and James Perry of Cumberland Presbyterian Church Camp Ground, land on Chestus
Creek," this is from Jennie James where she told Norman S James that the James
where Presbyterian. By the dates and birth place of the children it appears that
John took his family to GA., 1846. John and his family were, overall, probably
the most successful of all the sons of William James. At least they left more
records of notable achievements than did and other family. Cornellia was a
teacher of mathematics at the Cherokee Male Seminary in Tahlequah, I.T. In the
song that the children sang to learn the alphabet, "..J is for Miss James...".
She died in Tahlequah during a time when the snow prevented travel, so she was
buried in the Tahlequah cemetery. Her grave is about 100 feet south of the
mausoleum atop the hill in the old part of the cemetery. William Aurelius, it
is said, was killed at a gambling table in Catoose, I.T., by a man he accused of
cheating. His daughter, Alta Jones, confirmed the location of his death, but
did not mention the cause. It is said that Mary was mentally and physically
handicapped due to a fever in her childhood. Inez was a teacher; on Aug 1887
she married George W Droke, who later became a professor at the University of
Arkansas. Their daughter, Mary, became a teacher of languages at the same
school. Samuel taught school in the Maysville vicinity for many years. Two of
the school buildings in which he taught were built by himself. One of the
buildings still stands (1965), on land which later belonged to his son, Frank
Harold. Reese and Drury were doctors. Drury stayed in town Searcy, AR., where
he went to school, Robert settled at the town of Cotton Plant, AR. They were
quite wealthy, but more from land and coal interests than from the practice of
medicine.
Jennie James told (Norman S James) that Dick and the unnamed son were in the
Army during the Civil War. The unnamed one died of smallpox not long after he
went to camp. Dick never came home or wrote to his family after the war. Clark
went to see some of the men who served with him, about about what they
remembered having talk with him shortly before they was discharged. He was never
found, however, Alice married a man name Eisenhower. He had been a Captain
during the War, and afterwards still wanted to be called "Caption". They lived
in Texas, and had a large family.

Notes for CALVIN C JAMES:
NOTES:
Calvin went to Southeast Kansas, where he was one of the earliest settlers. He
"broke out" some prairie land and built some cabins on the west side of Spring
River near the mouth Shoal Creek which is now Cherokee Co., Kansas. Calvin
appears in the Deerfield Township, Van Buren Co., MO., Census of 1840. Then in
1850 was in the Census for McDonald Co., MO. He probably later moved to Jasper
County, Missouri, just a few miles east across the state line, and served as a
Justice of the Peace in 1855. Calvin was appointed first postmaster 8 Dec 1858, at
Brushville, McGee Co., KS., for a year or two. This info is found in a book
called Kansas Post Offices, or similar. The stuff on Lowell and Tennessee
Prairie says that the office was discontinued at the time of the battle of
Carthage (date?). Calvin had built three cabins on his place, and about 1859 Quaker Valley Mills, a
school was taught in one of them by the daughter of Dr. Lisle. He died before the Civil War and is buried
near Carthage, Missouri.

A family named JAMES, brother in law to DAVE HARLAN, had a settlement by
his permit, about a quarter mile above the present location of the Quaker
Valley Mills, having three log houses by the old road near the bank of the
river. In one of these houses a daughter of Dr. Lisle taught what was
probably the first school in the limits of what is now Cherokee County
about 1859.[Carol Louise Hartung Rini.FTW]



       Calvin went to Southeast Kansas, where he was one of the earliest settlers. He "broke out" some Prairie land and built three cabins, about 1859 a school was taught in one of them, on the west side of Spring River above Shoal Creek, which is now Cherokee County, Kansas.

Notes for CLARENDON JAMES:
NOTES:
John and Clarendon married sisters, who were Quakers. An item from the Monroe
County Deed Book A says that " 17 Oct 1835 George C. Harris deeded to John Perr
of Cumberland Presbyterian Church Camp Ground, land on Chestua Creek." Jennie
James told (Norman S James) that Dick and the unnamed son were in the Army
during the Civil War. The unnamed one died of smallpox not long after he went to
camp. Dick never came home or wrote to his family after the war. Clark went to
some of the men who served with him, about the remembered having talked with him
shortly before they were to be discharged. He was never found, however. Alice
married a man name Eisenhower. He had been a Captain during the War, and
afterwards still wanted to be called "Captain". They lived in Texas, and had a
large family.
The Clarendon James family is on the 1870 census of Whitfield Co., GA, but late
moved to the Maysville, Arkansas area. That is where Myrtle Overley knew them.
They may have lived in the Cherokee Nation instead of Arkansas. In the Index of
1890 Census of Persons Living Under Permit in Delaware and Cooweescoowee
Districts of the Cherokee Nation, there is a Clark James listed; he was 74 year
old, had arrived in the Cherokee Nation in 1890, and there were two in the
household. This may be the right Clark James. There is also a Wiley James, no
age given, three in the household, arrived 1872. There is a John James, age 23
arrived 1890.

Notes for AUGUSTA OCTAVIA EVANS:
[TERRY2.GED]
NOTES: Augusta Jane "Aunt 'Gusta" James was a plain, homespun type of woman,
very religious, and well loved by all who knew her. She was a pillar of the
small church in Maysville, which had begun with a brush-arbor revival led by a
preacher from Grove I.T. The church's first meeting place was a small log
building that had been used as a hog barn, and which was donated by the owner.

Co., Georgia (p. 713 1.73). I am not sure that the latter is the right one, but
feel the the first one is. These are the only references I have found. Note
that Garrett James named one of his sons Rufus. This child died in infancy.

Notes for WILEY BLOUNT JAMES:
NOTES:
Wiley Blount James was born in TN., possibly Blount County. His grand-daughter,
Myrtle Overley, said that he was named for the county in which he was born.
Sometime after he married Verlinda Jane Starrett, April 1846 they moved to
Georgia until the start of the Civil War. Wiley and his family moved from
Georgia to Mississippi Sep 1861, during or after the Civil War. (Dot Dorman,
Wiley's granddaughter, said that Wiley was a soldier in the War, but this was
not mentioned by any other informants, so doubt it.) After the War they moved to
Searcy Co. AR., near Marshall. Were they lived for a year or less before moving
to the Indian Territory near Maysville, AR. Actually live just across the line
in the Nation about one mile north of Maysville, probably in 1870. Myrtle says
that the area where their farm was located was called "Wet Prairie". Wiley
planted a pine tree near the home, which was still standing in 1965, giving the
area the name "Lone Pine". In a biography of Preston James, Wiley's son, it
states that the family moved from Mississippi to AR in 1870. The obituary of
Celituary of Celeste McKelvia also states that they moved in 1870. Some time
later the family moved to near Miami, OK. Where Wiley and his wife spent their
final years, both are buried in the GAR Cemetery at Miami, OK.

Wiley Blount James was born in Tennessee, maybe Blount County because his grand-daughter states that he was named after the county he was born in. Sometime after he married they moved to Gerogia until the start of the Civil War. He and his family then moved to Mississippi in September 1861. After the war they moved to Searcy County, Ar., near Marshall, for less then a year. Sometime after 1870 they moved to Miami, Oklahoma. Him and his wife are buried at the Gar Cemetery.
