Manawee-Tustennugee [sic]--Great Warrior, and a Chief among the Muscogees. This is the man who led the war party that killed the celebrated McIntosh, for having made a Treaty at the Indian Spring in 1825, by which an extensive cession of lands was made to the U.S. McIntosh was adjudged by their councils to be a traitor, and ordered to be shot. The sentence was speedily executed. His house was surrounded, he saw his fate and fell bravely, pierced by numerous bullets. Manawee was a member of the delegation to Washington, and signed the Treaty of January 1826, superceding that of 1825. [P. 3.]
