Inscription. William McIntosh, Scotch-Coweta Chief of the Coweta Towns, distinguished soldier in the battle of Autossee and Horseshoe Bend, and in the Seminole Wars with the rank of Brigadier-General, was killed by Upper Creeks and is buried here, the site of his home. As leading Creek collaborator with whites, he assembled at Indian Springs in February 1825, a small group of Lower Creek Chiefs who ceded all Creek lands in Georgia west of the Flint River. Angered, Upper Creeks pronounced a death sentence, which was executed by a large party of warriors. Lives of women, children and white men were spared, but the McIntosh Plantation known as `Lochau Talofau` on Acorn Bluff was devastated. This part is part of the original one square mile area centered on McIntosh`s Ferry which was withheld from the land lottery as a possible town site.
