Indians originally occupied this area

Posted by on May 4, 2015

Originally this land, around Pine Mountain and in West Georgia, was inhabited by the Creek Indians. In 1825 at Indian Springs, Georgia, Chief McIntosh signed a treaty ceding the land to the U. S. Government. Other Creeks disagreed and killed McIntosh.

More treaties were signed and by 1826 the Creeks had crossed the Chattahoochee River into Alabama, where they remained for about a decade before moving further west.
