Large heavy book containing historical information and genealogical data. Books aims to create a picture of the early area, it's formation as a county, through time, to its place in the economy and community of today. Located in south Alabama, Butler County was a railroad hub during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Famous as the birthplace of Hank Williams Sr., the county is also a stop on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Butler County was created by an act of the Alabama Legislature on December 13, 1819. Carved from portions of Conecuh and Monroe Counties, it was named for early settler Capt. William Butler, a veteran of the Creek War of 1813-14. The first settlers came to the county via the Federal Road from Georgia and the Carolinas after the Creeks were defeated in the war. Threatened by white settlement, a Creek war party attacked and killed two families in March 1818 in what became known as the Ogly Massacre. Several days later, Butler and several other men were attacked and killed by Creek leader Savannah Jack and his band of warriors while traveling between Fort Dale and Fort Bibb, west of Greenville. In response, local settler Thomas Gary built Fort Gary and charged settlers for protection within the stockade. Indignant over the fees, locals petitioned Gov. William Wyatt Bibb for protection. He sent Col. Samuel Dale, who along with settlers and militia constructed Fort Dale. After the Treaty of Fort Jackson, the Creeks were forced to move west of the Coosa River, and additional settlers poured into the county. During the first half of the nineteenth century, Butler County was known as the "Saratoga of South Alabama," after the famed New York health-spa town of Saratoga Springs, for its mineral waters, with many guests staying at the Butler Springs Hotel in Butler Springs. ; The Heritage of Alabama Series; Vol. 7; 9.13 X 6.57 X 1.11 inches; 544 pages
