15 1814 The Treaty of Fort Jackson is finalized on August 9, 1814. William Weatherford (Red Eagle) surrenders to Gen. Andrew Jackson and cede their lands to the federal government. This opens approximately half of present-day AL to white settlement.

Red Eagle (Billy Weatherford) surrenders to General Andrew Jackson at Fort Jackson later in the year.
