On this bend of the Tallapoosa River, stretching out before you, lay one of the ancient towns of the Muscogee Creek People, called Tukabatchee. Tukabatchee is one of the original four mother towns of the Creek Confederacy capitals in the Upper Creek region on the Tallapoosa River. In the fall of 1811, Tecumseh of Creek and Shawnee ancestry came here to his mother's town to persuade the Nation's warriors to adopt his ideas of rejection of the presence of American intruders and return to traditional ways. Tecumseh's visit to Tukabatchee represents the beginning of a series of events that resulted in the Creek War. Tecumseh addressed the Nation gathered here and gave his war speech where he persuaded some Upper Creek warriors to take the war talk against the intruders. The Creek Confederacy was not totally unified in this nativistic movement which led to the Creeks fighting each other causing the Creek Civil War of 1813-1814.
