A brutal reckoning : Andrew Jackson, the Creek Indians, and the epic war for the American South

Summary: The Creek War was one of the most tragic episodes in American history. What began as a vicious internal conflict among the Creek Indians lead to the Creek War of 1813-1814; shattered Native American control of the Deep South; and led to the infamous Trail of Tears. The war also gave Andrew Jackson his first combat leadership row, and set him on the path to the White House. Cozzens shows how the conflict set the stage for the American Civil War, and had a significant impact on the fate of America. -- adapted from jacket
