March 27, 1814

Battle of Horshoe Bend

A U.S. military force under Gen. Andrew Jackson defeated the Upper Creeks in the Battle of Horseshoe Bend on the Tallapoosa River about 30 miles west of the Georgia-Alabama border. As a result of the loss, the Creeks in Aug. 1814 ceded most of their lands in southern Georgia to Georgia in the Treaty of Fort Jackson.
