The Tallapoosa River runs from the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains in Georgia southward and westward into Alabama. It is formed by the confluence of McClendon Creek and Mud Creek in Georgia. The Tallapoosa joins the Coosa River about 10 miles to form the Alabama River.
Tallapoosa River in Trail of GloryEdit
The Tallapoosa River was the site of the Battle of the Horseshoe Bend in 1814. As part of an attack on a Red Stick position, Cherokee warriors led by The Ridge crossed the river, and launched a rear diversionary attack.
