In Response To: Confederate Indians in the Civil War ()
I think we should mention that not all Creeks were conferederates. Creek chief Opothole Yahola did not wish to fight for the south. 3 regiments of the Indian Home Guards were formed for the side of the Union. These 3 regiments wer intergrated with slaves and free people to fight with them.
