THOMAS FLOURNOY (1775-1857) Brigadier General War. Hero in War of 1812. He commanded the 3rd United States Infantry stationed along the Carolina-Georgia frontier. Flournoy was involved in raising troops, securing the coasts, and defending Americans living in East Florida. In March, 1813, he succeeded General Wilkinson as commander of the 7th Military District, comprising Mississippi Territory, Louisiana, and Tennessee. Flournoy's major responsibility was fighting the Creek Indians, who were supplied and armed by the Spanish and their British allies in Florida. Throughout Flournoy's command the Gulf region was torn by bitter warfare. Though nominally in command of the district, Flournoy's activities were eclipsed by Andrew Jackson, who succeeded him in April, 1814. In 1820 Flournoy was appointed United States commissioner to treat with the Creek Indians. One page ALS, no date, no place, but War of 1812 related: "My dear Sir, I have rec'd a letter from Lord Nefric requesting any information that can be obtained of young man going by the name of Andrew Mann - whose real one is Algernon Massingberd- he has been with Genl Harrison on his staff, I believe. It is possible that you may have heard or seen something of him during your visit to central America. Or you can write walker. Yrs. Truly, Thos. Flournoy." Very Fine.
