Thomas Flournoy

Brig. Gen. Thomas Flournoy (1775-1857) was a U.S. military leader who oversaw the Seventh U.S. Military District, which consisted of the Mississippi Territory (present-day Alabama and Mississippi), Louisiana, and Tennessee. Under his office, Gen. Ferdinand Claiborne defeated Creek Indians at the Battle of the Holy Ground and he later briefly served as an Indian commissioner to the Creek Indians and was embroiled in the contentious treaty negotiations that led to the 1821 Treaty of Indian Springs.
