Saturday’s activities will provide park visitors to learn more about Southeastern American Indian life in this area more than 200 years ago, as well as provide insight into the lives of the combatants and the reasons why the battle occurred.
Experience the life of the Creek and Cherokee Indians by visiting traditional hunting camps and watch demonstrations of cultural skills such as hide tanning, cooking and finger weaving. Children will have the opportunity to participate in an authentic Creek stickball game throughout the day.
Experience the life of Andrew Jackson’s frontier army. Watch Tennessee militia fire smoothbore cannon and flintlock muskets. A camp depicting American women’s lives on the frontier will provide wool dying demonstrations and teach visitors how to spin the wool.
All demonstrations will be presented multiple times throughout the day and promise to be entertaining as well as educational. A refreshment stand will be available benefiting the New Site Volunteer Fire Department.
