At the Edwards Field fight turkey tails were suddenly elevated above the heads of the savages, as a signeal for firing and for the purpose of halting the whites. Uncle Ben, being wide awake, cried out “Indians!”, when a volley of rifles was fired at the noble little band of white men, consisting of Col John McGrew, Silas Scarborough, and … a few others. Col McGrew and a man named Griffin were killed on the ground. Bradbury was mortally wounded and died on the road to the fort … [Fort Easley].” McGrew’s Fort – (1813), near Salitpa, Clarke Co., AL, a settlers’ two-acre palisaded fort, built by William and John McGrew, brothers.
