Fort Mitchell, newly reconstructed, was an early American fort dating back almost 200 years. Named for Georgia's former governor, David B. Mitchell, the fort was built on newly acquired territory, today's eastern Alabama. The outpost was setup along the Chattahoochee River and a new southern route, later named the Federal Road. Fort Mitchell became home for General Andrew Jackson, as he led the attack against the Creek Indians at Horseshoe Bend.
