Because Jackson had won the battle with the Creeks, it ended up breaking their power of resistance and overran many of the other Southwestern tribes, even the ones that were working as allies with Jackson. Within the next few years the Creeks, Choctaws, Chickasaws and Cherokees gave up millions of acres of their land in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and west Tennessee, because Jackson had made agreements with them. Jackson had made such a huge statement by winning this War and making such a good military success that he was the given the title of Major General. On January 8th, 1815 Jackson was named a national hero because he led 5,000 soldiers and defeated 7,500 British in New Orleans.

“The war that ensued started at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, on April 12, 1861, and lasted four years”(Confederate.., pg1). The North and South were quite different, so during the Civil war, each side had advantages politically, socially, economically, and demographically.
