On the 12th of February, 1825 the second Treaty of Indian Springs was signed. The treaty surrendered the Lower Creek lands east of the Chattahoochee and accepted relocation west of the Mississippi River. It was only signed by six Creek (Muscogee) chiefs, and was denounced by the Creek National Council who ordered the execution of the Creek signatories.
