AMERICAN INDIAN WARS

CREEK WAR (1813-1814) also known as the Red Stick War, began as a civil war within the Creek (Muscogee) nation. United States forces became involved by attacking a Creek party in present-day southern Alabama at the Battle of Burnt Corn. The U.S. and Britain were fighting the War of 1812 and "The British and the Red Stick Creeks sought an ally in each other. The war ended after Andrew Jackson in command of a force of combined state militias, Lower Creek and Cherokee thoroughly defeated the Red Sticks at Horseshoe Bend. This led to the Treaty of Fort Jackson (August 1814).

1837 CANADIAN REBELLION (Nov 1837-1838)
The rebellion in Lower Canada began first, in November 1837, and was led by many leaders such as Wolfred Nelson, Louis-Joseph Papineau, and Edmund Bailey O'Callaghan. The Lower-Canada rebellion probably inspired the much shorter rebellion in Upper Canada led by William Lyon Mackenzie in December. In addition, there were other grievances in Upper Canada. Those rebels who were arrested in Upper Canada following the 1837 uprisings were put on trial, with most being found guilty of insurrection against the Crown, and several of the ring-leaders were publicly hanged; most notably Samuel Lount and Peter Matthews.

Ira Everingham (b.1813) and his brother Henry Everingham (b.1819) were found on a pay list of Captain Joshua Thompson's Dunnville Volunteers, February of 1838. they were assisting the Canadian government to contain uprisings.

SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR (1898)
The Spanish-American War of 1898 ended Spainís colonial empire in the Western Hemisphere and secured the position of the United States as a Pacific power. U.S. victory in the war produced a peace treaty that compelled the Spanish to relinquish claims on Cuba, and to cede sovereignty over Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines to the United States. The war was preceded by three years of fighting by Cuban revolutionaries to gain independence from Spanish colonial rule.
