The Treaty of Fort Jackson (also known as the Treaty with the Creeks, 1814) was signed on August 9, 1814 at Fort Jackson in present-day Alabama following the defeat of the Red Sticks by United States and its Creek Nation allies at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. By the terms of the treaty, the Creek were forced to cede 23 million acres of their territory: their remaining land in Georgia and much of central Alabama, to the United States government. In other words, it made no distinction between the Red Sticks and the USA's allies.
Treaty of Fort Jackson in Trail of Glory
Word of the signing of Treaty of Fort Jackson reached Washington, D.C. shortly before the British attacked the city. In the aftermath of the Battle of the Capitol, Secretary of State James Monroe and President James Madison discussed the treaty. Both agreed that voiding it would carry too high a price, but it did give Monroe the impetus to seek out Sam Houston, Patrick Driscol, and John Ross, which in turn laid the foundation work for the creation of the Confederacy of the Arkansas.
