Little River was the home of Creek Chief William Weatherford, also known as War Chief Red Eagle. This was the area of much discussion and debate, bringing the Creeks into the War of 1812 and the Creek Civil War of 1813-1814. These events weighed heavily in the land forfeiture in the Treaty of Fort Jackson (Toulouse) in 1814. Weatherford surrendered to Andrew Jackson, ceding away the largest single tract of land in Alabama. This treaty set the stage for the forced Creek removal (Trail of Tears) of the 1830s. Alabama remains the home of many Creek Indians today, including the Poarch Band of Creek Indian reservation in Escambia County.
