I recently bought property in Macon county and believe I may be close to this battleground. Can u tell or share a map of the exact location of the Calabee Battleground?

My name is Howard Weir. Have written book on Creek War entitled “A Paradise of Blood.” You can check it out on Amazon. A group of archeologists , Macon County officials and Al Dept Archives History have been trying to locate battle site. Can you help? Thx.

1. The Creek War did not begin with the attack on Ft. Mims. It began on July 27, 1813, with the battle of Burnt Corn Creek.
2. The story lists High Head Jim as being among 70 bodies found on the field after the battle of Calebee. High Head lived into the early 1850’s, serving as one of the commanders of friendly Creek troops during the Second Seminole War (1836-37). He died in Indian Territory, present Oklahoma.
Janis, this is n interesting site. My great grandmother was Poarch Creek.
Floyd County Georgia is named for General Floyd.
