Menawa, picture by Charles Bird King

Menawa was a chief of the Upper Muskogee (Upper Creek) and leader of the Red Stocks in the war of 1813/14. Andrew Jackson defeated him in the Battle of Horseshoe Bend . He was hit by seven bullets and believed dead; however, he managed to drag himself off the battlefield. He recovered from his injuries but was forced to surrender and give up his land and possessions. Although he resisted the relocation, he and his tribe were moved to what is now Oklahoma in 1836 .
