We are pleased to announce the release of our new 20-minute documentary Battle for Fort Mims. You can watch it FREE on the Two Egg TV Roku app or on Amazon Prime!
The film tells the story of the 1813 retaliatory attack on Fort Mims by Red Stick Creeks. It was a pivotal event in Alabama, U.S. and Muscogee (Creek) history.
Fort Mims was a rough log stockade thrown up around the home of Samuel Mims in the Tensaw settlement of what was then the Mississippi Territory. A civil war was then underway in the Muscogee (Creek) nation and frontier settlers flooded into the fort after militia troops launched a failed attack on Red Stick warriors at the Battle of Burnt Corn Creek.
Infuriated by the unprovoked attack and deaths of members of their party, the Red Sticks organized a large army for an attack on Fort Mims. They arrived to find the fort ill-prepared for defense and its front gate wide open.
