Biographical / Historical

Chief William McIntosh, also known as Tustunegee Hutkee (White Warrior), was born approx. 1775-1778. He grew up in Coweta Town, presently known as Columbus, Georgia, where he became chief of the Cowetas, a Lower Creek Tribe.

The bicentennial pageant "White Warrior," written by Mrs. Estelle Condra, salutes Carroll County's First Citizen, Chief McIntosh and his notoriety. In 1825, he went against Creek law and signed a treaty ceding much of remaining Creek lands to the United States including what would become, in the following year, Carroll County. The production follows the story of Chief McIntosh from before his birth to his assassination. This pageant was part of the Sesquicentennial-Bicentennial Pageant that took place in Carrollton, Georgia in 1976.
