Knoxville, TN

Mar 23, 2013

Second in a series of "Tennessee in the War of 1812 Bicentennial" Symposia

The free symposium will feature three experts on the Creek War to present their research on the impact of the conflict’s on the region’s peoples under the theme, “Rethinking the Creek War,” a theme that reflects the title of a new book, Tohopeka: Rethinking the Creek War and the War of 1812, to which all three have contributed key essays March 23 at the East Tennessee History Center. Some 600 Cherokees fought alongside General Andrew Jackson’s army against the Red Stick Creeks at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend.

It is one of a series of programs held across the state by the Tennessee War of 1812 Commission, with funding by the Center for Historic Preservation at Middle Tennessee State University.  It is hosted locally by the East Tennessee Historical Society.
