Holy Ground Battlefield Park

Lowndesboro

About two miles north of the town of White Hall in present-day Lowndes County is the site of the 1813 battle between Creeks led by Red Eagle and American forces under General Claiborne with Pushmataha's Choctaws as allies. The Americans killed 21 Creeks and forced the rest into the Alabama River and surrounding swamps. Red Eagle was the last Creek to retreat. He escaped by leaping his gray horse, Arrow, from a 12-foot bluff into the Alabama River and swimming to the opposite shore with his rifle over his head, while bullets spattered around him.
