McIntosh Reserve Professional Review and Guide
"This 527-acre Carroll County park was once the home of Creek chief William McIntosh. Son of a Scots immigrant and a Creek princess, McIntosh served under Andrew Jackson in the War of 1812. In 1821 he brought together Creek and Cherokee leaders to establish a boundary between the two nations (they met at “Council Bluffs” along the trail by the Chattahoochee River). Four years later, McIntosh signed the Treaty of Indian Springs, ceding the final Creek lands in Georgia to the state. He was later assassinated here by treaty opponents."
