Battle of Ackia 1736

A sketch of a Chickasaw by Bernard Romans, 1775.

This battle between Chickasaws and soldiers of Karrer's Swiss Regiment took place today. Read about the campaign here
An observer called Red Shoes is quoted as saying 'that our troops heavily clad marched with too slow a step and so close together that it was impossible for the Chickasaws to fire without killing some of them and wounding several.' An end to French ambitions in the southeast.
