Stroll through the camps of Gen. Andrew Jackson’s forces, learn about Creek Indian crafts, talk to Red Stick warriors, listen to the thunder of a 6-pound cannon firing ... today the commemoration of the bicentennial of the Battle of Horseshoe Bend continues with living history exhibits at the Horseshoe Bend National Military Park. The park is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., admission is free and the weather is clearing. Pictured above are 10 faces of re-enactors who were showing visitors how those involved in the battle 200 years ago may have looked, dressed and lived. Most of them spent the Thursday night in authentic tent camps near the battlefield. | Kenneth Boone
