Living in two worlds and pleasing the inhabitants of both is not an easy task. William McIntosh, son of a Creek woman and a Scotsman, managed to do it successfully for awhile. Chief McIntosh fought with the Americans during the War of 1812 and was given the rank of general. The Creeks called him the “white warrior.” McIntosh was a wealthy man and in 1823 built a hotel and tavern at Indian Springs in Butts County.
