Massacre at Roanoke: The Destruction of a Georgia Town. An Incident in the Creek War of 1836.

On Sunday morning, May 15, 1836, Creek warriors led by a half-Creek leader, Jim Henry,slipped quietly across the Chattahoochee River and destroyed the Georgia town of Roanoke. Using information gleaned from eyewitness accounts, journals, period newspapers, and official records, the author has pieced together the true story of that incident in this thirty-four page history. Entertaining, informative, and an excellent resource for students, researchers, and history buffs.
