Midwest Book Review
The first edition of Halbert & Ball's Creek War of 1813 and 1814 was published in 1895, and another edition containing an introductory essay, supplementary notes, a bibliography, and an index by Frank L. Owsley, Jr. was published in 1969. this standard account of one of the most controversial wars in which Americans have fought is again available, with introductory material and a bibliography revised to reflect the advancers in scholarship since the 1969 edition. This facsimile reproduction of the 1895 original provides a full and sympathetic account of the Indians' point of view, from the earliest visit of the great Shawnee chief Tecumseh to the southern tribes in 1811, through the buildup of apprehension and hostilities leading to the fateful battles at Burnt Corn, Fort Mims, and Holy Ground.
