Pequot Indian War

The Pequot and their traditional enemies, the Mohegan, were at one time a single socio-political entity. Anthropologists and historians contend that sometime before contact with the Puritan English, the Pequot split into the two competing groups. In the 1630s, the Connecticut River Valley was in turmoil. The Pequot aggressively worked to extend their area of control, at the expense of the Wampanoag to the north, the Narragansett to the east, the Connecticut River Valley Algonquians and Mohegan to the west, and the Algonquian people of present-day Long Island to the south. The tribes contended for political dominance and control of the European fur trade. A series of smallpox epidemics over the course of the previous three decades had severely reduced the Indian populations, due to their lack of immunity to the disease. As a result, there was a power vacuum in the area. The Dutch and the English were also striving to extend the reach of their trade into the interior to achieve dominance in the lush, fertile region. By 1636, the Dutch had fortified their trading post, and the English had built a trading fort at Saybrook. English Puritans from Massachusetts Bay and Plymouth colonies settled at the newly established river towns of Windsor, Hartford and Wethersfield. 1634-1638 Indian Tribes Pequot Tribe (contr. of Paquatauog, ‘destroyers.’- Trumbull).

Creek Indian Wars

The Creek Indians, who had been allies of the British during the War of 1812, were angered by white encroachment on their hunting grounds in Georgia and Alabama. In 1813, some Creeks under Chief Red Eagle (William Weatherford) (1780-1824) attacked and burned Fort Mims on the lower Alabama River, killing about 500 whites [the Fort Mims Massacre]. Afterward, US militiamen, led by General Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), invaded Creek territory in central Alabama and destroyed two Indian villages, Talladega and Tallasahatchee, in the fall of 1813. Jackson pursued the Creek, and on March 27, 1814, his 3,000 man army attacked and defeated them at that Battle of Horseshoe Bend on the Tallapoosa River in eastern Alabama. More than 800 Creek warriors were killed, and the power of the Creek nation was completely broken. At the Treaty of Fort Jackson on August 9, 1814, the Creek were compelled to cede 23 million acres (half of Alabama and part of southern Georgia) to the whites. It is sometimes considered to be part of the War of 1812. 1811-1814-1842 Creek Indian Treaties Treaty of August 7, 1790 Treaty of June 29, 1796 Treaty of June 16, 1802 Treaty of November 14, 1805 Treaty of August 9, 1814 Treaty of January 22, 1818 Treaty of January 8, 1821 Treaty of January 8, 1821 (2) Treaty of February 12, 1825 Agreement of June 29 1825...

Alabama Civil War Rosters

The Civil War not only divided the country from North to South, many families were divided in the same way.  These ancestors didn’t have the means we have now to communicate with each other, letters took many days. Unfortunately many of our ancestors met on the field of battle not knowing the other was there. When you are using the links you will often find a different county listed in the one you are searching.  Many of these families moved around during the war and often were not in the original county of residence.  Many of the soldiers were buried in a different state because there was no way to bring the body home for burial.
