Fort Sinquefield Monument

A granite monument marks the site of Fort Sinquefield in Clarke County near the town of Whatley. The memorial was erected in 1931 with funds collected by county school children and includes the phrase "Lest we forget Hayden and his dogs" in recognition of the hunting dogs and their owner who repelled the attack by the Creeks. There is also a historical marker that provides details of the massacre that occurred at the site provided by the Alabama Historical Association.
