General Stand Watie was a Confederate General and the only full-blooded Native American to receive the rank of Brigadier General during the Civil War. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Stand Watie received a commission as Colonel in the Confederate Army. He was a Joint Commander with General R.M. Gano at the Battle of Cabin Creek fought September 18, 1864. In this battle, Confederates routed Federals and captured about 300 wagons loaded with supplies, thus enabling the Indian Confederates to continue in the war. Stand Watie surrendered his command at Doaksville near Fort Towson on June 23, 1865. He died September 9, 1871.
