Creek Civil War 1811 - 1814 The Creek Civil War became entwined with the British and American forces toward the end of the War of 1812. This leads to several questions that need to be answered to comprehend the events that transpired causing these two Wars to converge.

  • I. What European disputes were occurring in the Southern U.S. during this time?
  • II. What catalyst created two opposing factions in the Creek Nation?
  • III. What were other important catalysts that were occurring during this time?
  • IV. Final outcome of the Creek War and War of 1812.
