Butts County

Butts County was carved from Henry and Monroe counties in 1825 and named for Captain Samuel Butts, a militiaman killed fighting Creek Indians in the War of 1812. The county seat, Jackson, commemorates another Indian fighter, Andrew Jackson. This territory was the home of Chief William Mclntosh who negotiated treaties ceding Creek Indian lands to Georgia and was subsequently executed by his tribesmen who felt the sale was a betrayal of their territorial rights.
