BRIEF HISTORY:
Andrew Jackson's official report of the Battle of Horseshoe Bend (27 March 1814) mentions that "a few companies" of Colonel Bunch were part of the right line of the American forces at this engagement. More than likely, some of those companies included Captains Francis Berry, Nicholas Gibbs (who was killed at the battle), Jones Griffin, and John McNair. In addition, muster rolls show some casualties from this battle in the companies led by Captains Moses Davis, Joseph Duncan, and John Houk. Other men from this regiment remained at Fort Williams prior to Horseshoe Bend to guard the post -- provision returns indicate that there were 283 men from Bunch's regiment at the fort at the time of the battle.
This regiment was in General George Doherty's Brigade and many of the men stayed after the enlistment expiration of May 1814 to guard the posts at Fort Strother and Fort Williams until June/July. The line of march went through Camp Ross (near present-day Chattanooga), Fort Armstrong, and Fort Jackson. Per Tom Kanon, Tennessee State Library and Archives

On 31 January 1814 General Andrew Jackson issued the following order:
"Brigadier General Isaac Roberts, will, on the morning of the first day of Feb. next, take up the line of march with Col. Nicholas Perkins and Col. Wm. Y. Higgins' Regiments of Volunteer gun-men, from West Tennessee, whose term of service expires in sixty days from the time they first mustered. You will march them by Fort Deposit (Alabama); from thence the nearest route that provisions for the Officers and men can be plentifully obtained, to Fayetteville, Tennessee, when you reach Fayetteville, you will please to have them regularly mustered out of service and discharged...Those brave men tendered their services at a very important crisis when their services were much wanted; at a time when I was left almost without men, and the Magazine Stores exposed to the enemy for the want of men to protect them. For their patriotism the deserve well of their country; they formed a junction with me on the 14th of this instant; marched with me on the return march at Enotachopco, many of them again distinguished themselves; they have done important service to their country, the merit and receive the thanks of their General. You are required as far as the supplies in the county will afford, to have them well supplied with forage as their horses and supplies for themselves on their return march. After they are mustered out of the service they will be entitled to one days pay and ration for every 20 miles, until they reach their homes...(17) /s/ Andrew Jackson Major General Isaac Roberts was my great-great-great grandfather. His friendship with Andrew Jackson ended over the dispute concerning the voluntary service of his men. The full account of this is recorded in a book written by James Parton titled Life of Andrew Jackson . His descendants are presently seeking authority to place a memorial near the site where he is buried.
