Horseshoe Bend National Military Park Presentation to Korean Community on September 19

Horseshoe Bend National Military Park Ranger Matthew Robinson will deliver a presentation on the Creek Indian War and the Battle of Horseshoe Bend to the local Korean community on Thursday, September 19 at 10:00 a.m. at the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill in Auburn.  Sinae Kim will provide translation, and the free event is open to the public.

Horseshoe Bend National Military Park, located along the Tallapoosa River in Daviston, Alabama, is the site of the climactic battle that ended the Creek War of 1813-14 and resulted in a land cession of 23,000,000 acres to the United States and created a national hero of Andrew Jackson.  Matthew Robinson will discuss this history, as well as provide an overview of the recreational and educational opportunities available at the 2,000 acre park. 

The presentation is sponsored by Korea Corner in the Office of Professional and Continuing Education in the Division of Outreach at Auburn University and the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts. Although a Korean translation will be provided, non-Korean speakers are also encouraged to attend. Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street in Auburn.
