Montgomery, Alabama ~ A City Older Than The StateFollowing their defeat at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in 1814, the Creek Indians ceded millions of acres to the U.S. government. Within the cession, two rival towns soon sprang up on the south bank of the Alabama River's "Big Bend": New Philadelphia (1817) founded by Andrew Dexter and and East Alabama (1818) founded by General John Scott and associates. Although adjacent, the two were laid out on a diagonal to each other.
