Battle of Horseshoe Bend, 27 March 1814 (U.S.A.)

Battle that marked the defeat of the Creek Indians in the Creek War. Andrew Jackson, at this point a commander of Militia, had raised a force of 2,000 men, with a small number of regular troops to complement the volunteers, while the Creek had 900 men. Jackson's superior force wiped out the Indian force on the Tallapoosa River, losing only 201 men to the Creek's 700, ending their threat.
