Born of Creek mothers and Scottish fathers, these two fascinating men fought on opposing sides during the Creek War of 1813-14. William McIntosh (White Warrior) sided with Andrew Jackson and the Lower Creeks, and William Weatherford (Red Eagle) joined the Red Sticks. Benjamin W. Griffith, Jr., illuminates the remarkable story behind the legends and folk tales surrounding these Creek leaders.
