War of 1812 Bicentennial: Fort Mims

The Burnt Corn Creek and Fort Mims conflicts in southern Alabama in August 1813 led to the  American settlers becoming involved in the Creek Indian civil war and to an acceleration of the War of 1812 in the south. Detachments of soldiers used the Trace during that portion of the war.  Members of the Natchez Trace Parkway Association living history group participated in the reenactment August 30, 2013 at Fort Mims.
