White Hall in Lowndes County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Holy Ground Battlefield
Led by William Weatherford, their half-Creek, half-Scottish chief, the Indians staged a spirited defense of their homes. After thirty-three of their warriors were killed, the greatly outnumbered Creeks fled into the forest or across the Alabama River. Weatherford was the last to escape, making a dramatic leap on horseback from a bluff into the flooded river.
Erected by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
