1. Tennessee Militia Marker
Inscription.  The Tennessee Militia formed the backbone of the American line. Hailing from General Andrew Jackson's home state, many were veterans of his victory over the Greek Indians at Horseshoe Bend. Led by Generals William Carroll and John Coffee, their arrival offered Jackson the reassuring presence of familiar, combat-proven soldiers. Jackson demonstrated his unwavering confidence in the Tennesseans by positioning them at vulnerable points on the line. His foresight rewarded on January 8, as the men from the Volunteer State secured the crucial left flank deep within the Swamp and held firm in the center while receiving the full brunt of the British assault.
