The land near the streams of Shiloh Farms are known for their pre-historic Indian sites. Shiloh Farms property is RICH in Indian relics! My personal collection is highly impressive with some artifacts dated over 10,000 years old. It is a common occurrence at Shiloh Farms to walk a food plot and reach down to retrieve an arrowhead.
My interest in collecting started many years ago. All of my hunting activity has been around the state of Alabama where there has been an abundance of Indian artifacts to be found on the surface of the ground in the fields and along the eroded areas in the pastures.
Most of the Indian arrowheads found at Shiloh Farms are an Atlatl lance points that are several thousand years old.
A little history: In the early 1800s, the Upper Creek Indians (the Red Sticks) of present-day Georgia and Alabama were deeply troubled by the continuing encroachment of white settlers onto their lands. Tribal leaders counseled restraint and also urged neutrality in the developing rift between the United States and Britain. In 1811, however, the great Shawnee leader Tecumseh visited the southern tribes and urged formation of a confederation to end the diminishment of Indian lands and ways of life. He won many ardent supporters among the younger warriors.
The Battle of Horseshoe Bend
The Battle of Horseshoe Bend was fought during the War of 1812 in central Alabama. On March 27, 1814, United States forces and Indian allies under General Andrew Jackson defeated the Red Sticks, a part of the Creek Indian tribe inspired by the Shawnee leader Tecumseh, effectively ending the Creek War. (Horseshoe Bend Military Park is located 15 miles North of Shiloh Farms)
The campaign’s conclusive battle was fought on March 27, 1814. It occurred near an Upper Creek village on a horseshoe-shaped bend in the Tallapoosa River near present-day Alexander City, Alabama.
