Battle of Breakfast Branch

On the west bank of the Ocmulgee River in what today is Wilcox County, 34 members members of the Telfair County Militia engaged about 60 Creek Indians in the Battle of Breakfast Branch. The battle occurred in an area ceded to Georgia less than two months earlier in the Treaty of the Creek Agency. Four Creeks and five militia members were killed in what proved to be the last battle between Creeks and whites in the area.
