Event Description

Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson Park and Horseshoe Bend National Military Park in partnership will present a symposium on the Bicentennial of the Treaty of Fort Jackson and its aftermath on August 9th at the Alabama Department of Archives and History in Montgomery, Alabama. The event will take place in the Farley auditorium beginning at 9 AM and concluding at 12:45 PM. The symposium is free and no registration is required.

The Treaty of Fort Jackson and the End of the Creek War symposium is the final Creek War Bicentennial event. Other notable events in Alabama include the bicentennial of the attack on Fort Mims in August 2013 and the bicentennial of the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in March 2014. The Treaty of Fort Jackson symposium brings to an end a year of special commemorations and seeks to explain why these important moments in history are still significant to us today.

Scheduled speakers include: Tom Kanon (Tennessee State Library & Archives), Brian Conary, Robert Thrower (Poarch Band of Creek Indians), Justin Giles (Muscogee [Creek] Nation of Oklahoma) and Kathryn Braund (Auburn University). Opening remarks will be made by Doyle Sapp (National Park Service) and closing remarks will be made by Jim Parker (Alabama Historical Commission).
