John Coffee (1772-1833) was an American soldier, planter, and politician. He was a close ally of Andrew Jackson, serving at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend and the Battle of New Orleans. He served as a legislator in the Georgia state house and in the United States House of Representatives.
Coffee played a critical role at Horseshoe Bend. Most of Jackson's Indian allies were under Coffee's command. Coffee was given the task of launching a rear assault on the Red Stick position, a task he deligated to The Ridge. The Ridge succeeded, creating a diversion, and allowing a frontal assault led by Houston to succeed.
