I enjoy every single post, and always learn something! Especially interested in Fort Mims era.
Every time I see one of these,”research” reports about Native Americans who fought in either the confederacy, or the union, I cannot help but to cringe. No one seemed to want to do the actual research and discover that it wasn’t just the 5 nations that fought. The Catawba are always left out of the articles.
Needless to say, that it wasn’t just the civil war that dwindled their numbers, it was also an outbreak of small pox.
I wish we had more information of the Catawba. Most information comes from old history books and I guess not much was said about them. If you’d like to post something about the Catawba, email it to [email protected]
