Like I always say the first place you should stop is the Visitors Center. Here you will pay the entrance fee and get any brochures, maps and other information to enhance your visit. There is also a nice museum and a short informative film available. The park is one of four parks associated with the War of 1812. It also concerns an 1814 battle between General Andrew Jackson's 3300 member Tennessee Militia accompanied by some Creek allies and 1000 Red Stick Warriors led by the Creek Indian War Chief, Menawa.
