Dadeville in People's Lives

Sam Houston: I fought at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend here in 1814, during the War of 1812. Four months ago, I had proudly been promoted from a private to a third lieutenant. During the battle, I was wounded by a Creek arrow that struck my groin. Despite this, I had the wound bandaged, and promptly went back out to rejoin the fighting. I volunteered to accompany my friend Andrew Jackson in driving away a throng of Natives besieging our temporary forts, and during the fight was hit by bullets in my shoulder and arm. I was encouraged to return home as a disabled veteran eligable for government aid, but instead leapt at the army's offer of free surgery available in New Orleans.
