Full descriptions of the Muscogee Peoples, the Creeks, with emphasis on their physical appearance, life, habits, ceremonies, dress, communities, customs and symbols.

A Glossary on Muscogee Words and Spanish Words. Maps. The Battle at Horseshoe Bend with Andrew Jackson and his Tennessee Militia, Cherokee and Creek allies against Menawa and his “Red Stick” Creek warriors. The adventurer William A.
