The Creek War and the War of 1812

This site is designed to serve as both an information
resource for the study of the Creek War and the related
Gulf Coast campaigns of the War of 1812 and as a
companion to our book on the topic,

Though among our country's least known and
understood conflicts, these wars played a crucial role in
charting the history of the South. They led to the forced

increased migration into the area, furthered the
development of slave-based agriculture and launched

events in Southern history by exploring this site, and
hope you will revisit it over the coming months as it
continues to develop.
