Author, Gregory Waselkov tells the story of the Fort Mims Massacre and how the battle marked the transition from a civil war within the Creek Tribe (Muskogee) to a war between the United States and the Red Stick warriors of the Upper Creek. The Fort Mims battle occurred on August 30, 1813 during the Creek War (1813-1814), when a force of Creek Indians, belonging to the “Red Sticks” stormed the fort and defeated the militia garrison. After the defeat of the garrison, there ensued a massacre and almost all of the remaining Lower Creek, white settlers, and militia at Fort Mims were killed. The Red Sticks’ victory at Fort Mims spread panic throughout the Southeastern United States frontier, and settlers demanded governmental action and fled to surrounding areas, including Mobile, Alabama. The Red Stick victory was one of the greatest achieved by Native Americans. Fort Mims is now a State Historic site located about 35 miles north of present-day Mobile, Alabama.
