Jackson's Campaign In Alabama

General Jackson's Campaign
(Seen At Horseshoe Bend NP)

The next great battle was at Talladega [after Tallaseehatchee], on the site of the present town of the same name in Talladega county, Alabama, on November 9, 1813.  Jackson commanded in person with two thousand infantry and cavalry. Although the Cherokee are not specifically mentioned they were a part of the army and must have taken part in the engagement.   [Source]
