December 7-8, 2013 - Holy Ground 1813: Battle of Econochaca
- December 7-8, 2013 - Lowdesboro, AL - 200th Anniversary Holy Ground 1813: Battle of Econochaca 1813.
In the late summer of 1813, the Creek Redstick War erupted on the Alabama
frontier at Fort Mims, at a great loss of life and a great victory for the Redstick
warriors. By November & December, the US Army and the Choctaw Alliance
started a march north out of the Mobile Delta with over 1000 men to attack the
Creek war village Econochaca on the Alabama River at the Holy Ground.
Please join us for the Battle of the Holy Ground at Holy Ground Battlefield Park
in Lowndes County, Alabama on December 7th & 8th, 2013. Camps will, once
again, be erected along the cliffs of the Alabama River for the Creek village of
Econochaca, the Territorial Militia, the Choctaw Alliance and the 3rd US
Infantry to help re-tell one of the brave stories of the Creek War that burned
through our soon-to-be state 200 years ago.
Period camps and displays will be open to the public both days, with battle
reenactments at 1:30PM Saturday and 12:30PM Sunday. Park visitors may
observe the battle from the overlook boardwalk in the park, as the warriors and
soldiers fight in the woods beneath you. For an event flyer and downloadable registration, see: http://www.veteranarms.com/ReproductionMuzzleloadersandFlintlocks/Holy-Ground.html
