Skirmish at Cow Creek #georgiapioneers

The Skirmish at Cow Creek

Cow CreekDuring August of 1836, the Creek Indians camped along Warrior Creek, Little River, Alapaha River and Cow Creek were fleeing into the Okefenokee Swamp. Their purpose was to join up with the Seminole Indians in Florida. On the 27th of August, the militia companies commanded by Colonel Henry Blair, Captain Lindsay and Captain Levi J. Knight, caught up with a band of Creeks at Cow Creek. At that time the creek was known as "Troublesome Ford" near Statenville. The skirmish lasted about ten or fifteen minutes, with the enemy being completely routed.  Echols County GA Genealogy Records
