Davy Crockett was part of Colonel Coffee's expedition:
A cavern between Tennessee and Huntsville, Alabama -- were Jackson's forces ever here?
On 3 November 1813, the entire force surrounded and destroyed the Indian village of Tallushatchee, killing all the men and capturing the women and children. On 9 November, the force surrounded the 1000 hostile Creeks that had the friendly Indian village of Talledega under siege. With the intention of destroying the hostiles, General Jackson pushed forward his attack, but due to the lack of vigor on the part of one unit, 700 Indians broke through a gap in the circle and escaped. Because of the poor condition of his men, the lack of provisions for a prolonged campaign and the fact that only wounded men were holding the fort, he returned to Fort Strother.
