1. Interesting! I’ve heard that Jackson was aided 1814, by a small delegation of people from what is now the Washington County area of Alabama during the War of 1812. I was told they led Jackson and his militia though the then Mississippi Territory to arrive for The Battle of New Orleans two weeks earlier than planned to fortify against those bastard Red Coats. Of course unbeknownst to both sides in the New Orleans battle there had been a peace agreement made.
    Anyway, it would only be fitting that Jackson, as president would favor the people of Alabama over the whims of the federal govt.
    Jackson, love him or hate him, he was the only president to lead America into freedom of all owed debt, and he was loyal to the all patriots, especially those during the War of 1812. Real men…leaders like that don’t get the vote anymore.

  2. I was at Ft. Mitchell last Saturday morning doing some informal “living history” for the visitors. An interesting place. Great folks giving lots of time and effort to preserve the site.

  3. Walker Tribe of Creek Nation…

  4. President Jackson caused the murder of 25 million Native Americans. Shameful.

    1. So did the Aztecs. In the spring the Aztecs would skin a young maiden alive and the priest would parade around town in her skin, and in the fall the priest would skin an old woman alive and parade around town in her skin. This doesn’t count the daily sacrifices where they ripped the beating heart out of a live slave. The people would line the roads and cheer. Perspective

    2. LeAnn, the Aztecs were not in the area that became the USA.

    3. Still Native Americans.

    4. They were in the 1400-1500s, and far from Alabama. Americans in New England burned people at the stake. They and the Aztecs have nothing to do with Alabama history. Any history major at Montevallo should know that!

    5. Oh, you trolled my FB page! Ha! What happened to the Native Americans was wrong but they were not a completely peaceful, pot smoking, loving group. They were not a bunch of pansies. If the settlers did not have guns, they would have annihilated them. They were not stupid. They had great military strategy. The whole reason we name our military vehicles and sports teams after the tribes is because they were tough. Give the Native Americans some credit.

    6. Oh I do give them credit. This land belonged to them! We were the uninvited guests who proceeded to take over. I simply wanted to understand who posted such. The white invaders were just like invaders today, such as Isis.

  5. O jesus people what the hell is wrong with y’all this is history can’t be undone learn grow and try for a better future

  6. There was hardly 25 million people in the US during this time. Where did u get your number? That is a stupid statement.

  7. Yes Mark! Most people don’t know and don’t want to know to true history. Doesn’t mix well with their politically correct kool-aid.

  8. My wife of 55 years is buried at Ft. Mitchell National Cemetery after fighting colon cancer for two years. I have also been diagnosed with cancer. It is interesting that my wife’s gr-gr-grandmother; Sirrena Rushing (wife of Baron DeKalb Rushing of Troy, Pike Co., AL, was full blooded Creek)……adopted by the Rushing family after her mother and father were forced marched on the Trail of Tears from Ft. Mitchell. My grandmother, Etta Mae Baxley Carr was also full blooded Creek.

    I received a call from a friend of the family, Sen. Jack Brinkley of Columbus, GA. He asked me what he could do for me. I told him that I would appreciate it if he would do something for the Creek Nation who has been in the valley for thousands of years. Several months later he called again and he asked me if I had been to Ft. Mitchell and seen the construction progress at Ft. Mitchell; I told him no but I would drive down there and call him back. Recently, my son Michael Carr and I drove down there and saw the progress; I am really impressed and proud of our heritage. We met with a group of blacksmiths at one of the many buildings and Museum and they invited us to come back and visit with them.

    Jack delivered on his promise and I am proud of the work he did for us in Congress. May HaShem bless and keep him.

  9. Francis Scott Keyes lived in Tuscarubria really close to old Washington not D.C. who defended Samuel Worchester who received Choctaw Land under the terms of the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek on Sept 27/28 1830 which was ratified by the United States in 1831 was imprisoned at the Washington Arsenal at Mount Vernon Alabama and then won the case of Worchester v Georgia in 1832 immediately thereafter.

  10. The story says it was William Wirt who defended Samuel Worchester. However it was William Byrd who is infamous for “disenfranchising the white man” and made cause for their removal from Indian Territory in 1832 and 1833 as this article mentions.

    In 1834, Congress enacted 25 USC 177 – the Non-Intercourse Act against the Choctaw Nation in an attempt destabilize the Southern economy.

  11. Let’s do it again Alabama

  12. One of my Dearest Loves in my life is buried there. An old USAF Fighter Pilot. Flew in Korea and Vietnam. Lt. Col Ralph Ritteman. Robert Ritteman, Randi Ritteman. <3

  13. Well that sign will be removed.
