Editorial Reviews

Review

"An interesting, interdisciplinary collection of essays on a timely topic,quite readable by the non-specialist."--Robbie Ethridge, coeditor of Light on the Path: The Anthropology and History of the Southeastern Indians
 


Tohopeka is an important and timely volume that offers fresh insights into the War of 1812 and overlapping Creek War. As a whole, the book busts many long-held myths and alters our most basic interpretations of the southern conflicts.”—Andrew K. Frank, author of Creeks and Southerners: Biculturalism on the Early American Frontier and editor of Early Republic: People and Perspectives

Two or three years ago there was a Creek War / War of 1812 symposium held at Auburn University. I watched some of it on-line. I was only able to catch a few of the talks due to a poor quality computer connection. There was talk about putting the conference on a dvd, and I was disappointed when I did not see it. But now I have something even better, with all the references. The book containing all the papers from the symposium, with the sources and references they used is much better.

This book can be compared to a whole college study course about the Creek War. A dozen different papers on different aspects of the war, from the best professors and writers on the subject. I have books and papers by several of these people, and even know a few of them rather well. And for the bicentennial of the war, rethinking and reexamining the war is exactly what they do. Included are perspective of the Creek descendants themselves, with views from Ted Isham of the Muscogee Creek Nation, and Robert Thrower of the Poarch Creek Band.

Authors of the various chapters are ones you probably know if you have any books on the Creek War, and you probably have a book or two written by them. Kathryn Holland Braund who wrote "Deerskins and Duffles: Creek Indian Trade with Anglo America, 1685-1815" and who has recently reprinted works of William Bartram and James Adair. David and Jeanne Heidler who wrote, "Old Hickory's War: Andrew Jackson and the Quest for Empire."

The 1813-1814 Creek War has always bothered me, and I always felt as if I was missing a few pieces of the puzzle. I have visited Fort Mims and Horseshoe Bend, and read a number of biographies on both William Weatherford and Andrew Jackson. I even worked at one of these War of 1812 sites for almost three years.

This is a collection of essays about the Battle of Horseshoe. The different views add to an understanding of the Creek Indian War of 1813.
