1. Choctaw Nation Marker
Inscription.  Choctaw Indians fought with General Andrew Jaackson during the crucial lead-up to the Battle of New Orleans. Chief Pushmataha, who served with Jackson in the Pensacola campaign, encouraged the Choctaws to help Jackson at New Orleans. Commanded by Captain Pierre Jugeant (Juzan), who was married to a Choctaw, they guided American troops through difficult swamp terrine, harassed Britisher sentries, and led lightning attacks and night raids. During the battle the Choctaws fought alongside the Tennessee Militia on the Swampy left flank, General Jackson recognized the Choctaw alliance for their contribution to the victory over the British.
