杰克森在181489日签署杰克森堡条约 (Treat of Fort Jackson)

随着他们向西边移居,这些移民经常通过不公平的手段取得了大批的土地。就在天梭湖攻击事件之后,杰克森率领5千名志愿军,消灭了两个克里克族的村落。

七个月之后,杰克森的军队又在马靴湾战役 (
Battle of Horseshoe Bend) 中,击败了克里克族的防线。有8百名克里克族的斗士被杀,而有5百名妇女与儿童被捕。

181489日,杰克森签署了「杰克森堡条约」,战火也因此得到平息。不过,克里克族却失去了23百万英亩的土地,大部分都是位在现在的阿拉巴马州与佐治亚州。


As they moved west, settlers took large amounts of land, often acquired by unfair means. After the attack at Lake Tensaw, Jackson led 5,000 militiamen in the destruction of two Creek villages.

Seven months later, Jackson's forces destroyed the Creek defenses at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. Eight hundred Creek warriors were killed and 500 women and children captured.

On August 9, 1814, Jackson signed the Treaty of Fort Jackson, bringing an end to the war. The Creeks lost 23 million acres of their land in present-day Alabama and Georgia to the United States.
