Show synopsis Based on a handwritten manuscript more than 150 years old, Creek Indian History is a primary resource containing accounts of significant Indian/white encounters in early Alabama history -- from the Indian perspective. Written in the early 1800s by George Stiggins, the son of a Creek mother and a white father, this volume recounts the origins and ways of life of the tribes of the Creek Confederacy and their viewpoints on such key events of the Creek War as Burnt Corn and Fort Mims. Stiggins was William Weatherford's brother-in-law, and thus his explanation of Weatherford's controversial role in the Creek War has special value. William Wyman's notes and introduction put the Stiggins account in historical perspective and traces its circuitous route to publication.
