Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for anyone interested in Andrew Jackson, Alabama history or just a good read. I started it about 1:00 p.m., took a short break for dinner and finished it before 9:00. It is hard to put down. The book reads like a novel, and that in fact is what it may be. I am not knowledgeable enough to comment on its historic accuracy, but it should be noted that that some of the details, paricularly about Red Eagle, are at variance with accounts of 20th Century historians.
The author juxtaposes Red Eagle, said to be the great leader of the Creek Nation, with Old Hickory. It is difficult to ascertain which of the two men he has the most respect for.
If the book is to be taken as a history book, it has a weakness in that it lacks an index. It does contain many quotes, perhaps too many. A reader has to wonder if many of the author's assertions are unattributed quotes.
Maybe five stars are too many. But it was difintely, worth what it cost through Amazon and the time taken in reading it.

If you live in Alabama you will recognize lots of place names, the name of which come from the people and battles descried here. Lots of real Alabama history. There is much more information about Adrew Jackson than about William Weatherford, however Jackson's place in history is more completely documented in the literature. The author had to necessarily rely on previous published information. The kindle version is free, but lacks the illustrations.

Interesting to read an account written in the 1800s and it gives a through job of covering the battles and motives for the war. However the flowery language of the day and the amount of personal comments by the author tends to take away from the flow of the book. I would have liked to have more info on other Indian leaders under Red Eagle as well as more about the Creeks involvement with the Spanish and the British but as pointed out in the book history is written by the victors and so perhaps not much is known (or was known at the time the book was written ) about that. Worth reading , as it is about a part of the War of 1812 that is not usually mentioned.
