Jackson was then prostrate at a Nashville inn, from the effects of a bullet received from the hands of Thomas H. Benton, in a duel. He appealed to the Tennesseeans to take the field, promising to be with them as soon as possible. Five thousand men speedily responded. Jackson despatched (Sept. 26, 1813) Gen. John

Fully 200 Indians perished, and eightyfour women and children were made prisoners.
