Buttahatchee, Alabama ~ Native American Mounds

Period: Mississippian

Locally, these three mounds are called the Chickasaw Mounds and were part of the "hunting grounds" of the Chickasaw Indian Domain. The area is also known as the Hamilton Mounds and the so-called "Military Ford." General Andrew Jackson once built a river crossing on the site as part of "Military Road," which was a short cut between New Orleans and Nashville.
