Jackson's Military RoadEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Jackson's Military Road was built during the War of 1812 to help General Andrew Jackson prepare against a British invasion. Jackson needed to be able to move his army more quickly to defend New Orleans, Mobile, or Pensacola. The road split off from the Natchez Trace at Tupelo, Missississippi and stretched south to New Orleans, Louisiana.
