TENNESSEANS FOUGHT IN THE WAR OF 1812
Their campaigns were with Colonel Samuel Bunch who commanded two separate regiments at different times during the war. One regiment of Colonel Samuel Bunch was a three-month enlistees, in the brigade of General James White, in which they participated in the action against the tribe of Creeks known as the Hillabees ( November 18, 1813). Although Andrew Jackson was negotiating a peace proposal with this tribe, the East Tennesseans under General White were not aware of this situation when they attacked the Hillabee village. This attack by White's brigade, aided by a band of Cherokees, led to a stubborn resistance by the Hillabees until the end of the Creek War.
