- God be praised
- Here is Mr. Dudley senior, and Jane his wife also;
- Who while living was his superior, but see what death can do.
- Two of his sons also lie here, One Walter, t’other Joe:
- They all of them went – in the year
- 1510 – below.
From St. Philip’s churchyard, Birmingham, England
- To the memory of James Baker, who died January 27, 1781
- O cruel Death, how cou’d you be so undkind
- To take him before and leave me behind?
- You should have taken both of us, if either,
- Which would have been more pleasing to the survivor.
Prior to statehood, Alabama was a vast wilderness with a large Native American population. It is only natural that when new immigrants from other states arrived, conflicts over the land would arise. Soon, these small conflicts exploded into war.
Alabama Footprints Confrontation is a collection of lost and forgotten stories that reveals why and how the confrontation between the Native American population and settlers developed into the Creek-Indian War as well as stories of the bravery and heroism of participants from both sides.
