How much did the War of 1812 contribute to the Creek Indian Wars? Folks will surely be talking about it when Old Knoxville Days celebrates Benjamin Hawkins and the Creek Legacy Nov. 12 and 13, 2005, in Crawford County, GA. This living history festival will feature as special guests members of the Lower Muscogee Creek Tribe from Whigham, GA, who will be camped in Knoxville to demonstrate tribal skills of the early 1800s. The festival will also feature an old-fashioned Sacred Harp Singing, handcraft vendors, exhibits, hands-on children's activities, music, mule wagon rides, and drama. We have not been able to find War of 1812 re-enactors to participate. If you know someone who'd like to come, please let us know. And PLEASE COME.
