Regarding Creek Indian Removal. “The Treaty of Fort Jackson,” which is also known as the “1814 Treaty with the Creeks.” This treaty was signed near Wetumpka on Aug. 9, 1814 after the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. In addition to Andrew Jackson and William Weatherford, other men who signed the treaty include William McIntosh Jr., Folappo Haujo of the Eufaulau Indians, John O'Kelly of the Coosa Indians, Eneah Thlucco Hopoiee of the Talesee Indians and Tuskegee Emautla of the Tuskegee Indians.
“The Trail of Tears” came about mostly due to the Indian Removal Act of 1830, which was passed into law on May 28, 1830 during Andrew Jackson’s presidency. Not all Indians were removed from Alabama, however, as evidenced by the presence of the Poarch Creek Indians and their reservation near Atmore.
