William Weatherford and Andrew Jackson

A NATION RISING by Kenneth C. DavisKenneth C. Davis of Don't Know Much About History fame always tells me something I didn't know—and he's done it again in A Nation Rising: Untold Tales of Flawed Founders, Fallen Heroes, and Forgotten Fighters from America’s Hidden History.

Since I didn't know this slice of history, I'll let
Ken tell you the story of William Weatherford (aka Red Eagle), the Creek Wars, and why some people refuse to even touch at $20 bill.
