Council of Tribes

Creek Horse Riders are capable of missile attacks or devastating charges into enemy units.

These mounted warriors are armed with muskets and axes; their strength lies in the flexibility these weapons give them on the battlefield. They can unleash a barrage of firepower on an enemy then use their axes to terrible effect when charging home. By targeting the enemy flank or rear, they can break units on their own.

In 1813 the Creek nation was divided by a civil war, that came to be known as the Red Stick War. The Red Sticks were Creek who believed the tribe should return to the traditional ways of life and reject American influences. When a group of Red Sticks were executed by the Creeks for killing two settler families it sparked a tribal war, with the Americans joining the fight. The Red Sticks lost, and Colonel Andrew Jackson forced the Creeks to cede twenty million acres of land to the US Government, regardless of Creek loyalties. Jackson later became President, and was responsible for the controversial Indian Removal Act of 1830.
