As U.S. Army and Georgia Militia Headquarters, Fort Hawkins played a significant role in the War of 1812. The fort supplied all command and logistics support for the Southern Theatre and fort personnel participated directly in the Creek War and The Battle of New Orleans. Although a military stalemate, our Second War of Independence settled America's freedom from British rule. During the burning of Washington, D.C., the plans and records of Fort Hawkins were presumably destroyed. Fort Hawkins is listed as an archaeological site on the National Register of Historic Places.
