Anyone feel free to edit this, as I'm dusting off my history book. I am descended from pre-1800 Clarke. My ancestors that had military involvement,Indian wise, was with the Creeks. They were the more predominant tribe in the area. There was no Cherokee "war" per sey, they were simply rounded up by troops and kept at places such as Fort Buffington in Cherokee County (concentration camps)until they could be moved west. This was General Winfield Scott's first field assignment, performed mainly by GA Militia.
