famous battle took place in Ballground, Cherokee County, Georgia.
Accounts differ on exact events, however, the Creek,
who greatly outnumber the Cherokee, attack the Cherokee line
five times. During the fifth attack elderly Cherokee leader
Kingfisher is slain. His teenage wife picks up his weapon, and
chanting a Cherokee war song,
Ward leads the Cherokee to victory, routing the
Creek. The battle marked successful expulsion of the Creek from
much of North Georgia. The only major remaining Creek settlement
was near present Rome, Georgia.
