The Battle of Emuckfaw January 22, 1814
This battle was fought near Emuckfaw, Alabama. In early January of 1814, Jackson’s original military force of over 2,500 soldiers, had dwindled down to around 103 soldiers. However, Jackson was expecting another 2,500 white soldiers to arrive in February. Yet, he was obviously impatient and somehow he was sent a force of over 900 new recruitments on January 14, 1814. On January 22, 1814, Jackson had already led his soldiers to the vicinity of the Creek village of Emuckfaw. He chose to set camp about 12 miles from the Creek village. However, about 3 or 4 miles from Jackson’s camp, a force of brave soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation (Shawnee Confederation) had kept a watchful eye on the movements of Jackson’s larger military force, then during the early morning hours of January 22, 1814, they launched an assault on Jackson’s camp. In the short battle that followed, the white soldiers eventually drove off the brave soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation. However, Jackson’s plans for attacking the Creek village of Emuckfaw had been thwarted. Jackson did order General John Coffee to lead around 400 white soldiers to the village but after reaching the vicinity of the village, they determined that too many soldiers were prepared to defend the village, then retreated back to Jackson’s camp. After Coffee led his soldiers back to Jackson’s camp, a large group of soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation showed up again and commenced to attack the camp of the white soldiers. They were eventually driven off. The casualties of the Southern Anishinabe Confederation at the battles were 54 killed. However, the Anishinabek and their Indian and black allies, were victorious.
