William McIntosh

(c. 1778 - 1825)

In 1825 Chief William McIntosh signed the Treaty of Indian Springs, which granted the federal government Creek Nation lands in exchange for territory west of the Mississippi. He was sentenced to death by a tribal council, which found he lacked authority to cede the land. Two hundred Creek warriors shot and stabbed McIntosh to death at his plantation.
