Individual Note:
     Thomas Flournoy was a native of Augusta, Ga., where he practiced law until called into service in the War of 1812. He was commissioned a brigadier general in the United States Army in June, 1812. He commanded the 3rd United States Infantry stationed along the Carolina-Georgia frontier. Flournoy was involved in raising troops, securing the coasts, and defending Americans living in East Florida. In March, 1813, he succeeded General Wilkinson as commander of the 7th Military District, comprising Mississippi Territory, Louisiana, and Tennessee. Flournoy's major responsibility was fighting the Creek Indians, who were supplied and armed by the Spanish and their British allies in Florida. Throughout Flournoy's command the Gulf region was torn by bitter warfare. Though nominally in command of the district, Flournoy's activities were eclipsed by Andrew Jackson, who succeeded him in April, 1814. In 1820 Flournoy was appointed United States commissioner to treat with the Creek Indians.
