FORT MIMS CHAPTER

North Baldwin County, Alabama

The Fort Mims Chapter NSDAR was organized in 1949 under the leadership of Mrs. Carl Slaughter. The name was chosen in remembrance of Fort Mims, the site of the largest Indian massacre in American history.  Each fall the chapter conducts a memorial service to honor those who died on that fateful day, August 30, 1813.

For years nothing visible marked the location of Fort Mims. The chapter placed a marker in 1959, and in 1998 dedicated a new marble monument at the historic site.
