From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Peter McQueen (c. 1780 – 1820) was a Creek Indian trader and warrior. During the Creek War of 1813-1814, McQueen joined the Red Stick faction, leading warriors from his tribal town of Tallahassee, Florida. He commanded forces at the Battle of Burnt Corn and the Fort Mims massacre.

After the Red Sticks were defeated at Horseshoe Bend, McQueen, along with other Red Stick warriors, retreated into Florida. They continued to fight during the First Seminole War.
