200th Anniversary of Fort Mims
August 30th, 2013 will mark 200 years since the bloodiest battle between Creek Indians and settlers in American history took place at Fort Mims in Tensaw, Alabama. On the weekend of August 30th - September 1st, 2013, the Fort Mims Restoration Association will commemorate this historic event, remembering the lives of hundreds of white settlers, mixed-blood Creeks, enslaved Africans, and Creek Indians that were lost on Aug. 30th, 1813. Many descendants of those who escaped and those who were killed will also be honored.
