      against the "Civilized Tribes" of the Southeast were conducted by federal troops and significant numbers of state- and territory-raised troops.  For example, Andrew Jackson did not command federal troops against the Creeks and other tribes.  He did not command federal troops until the War of 1812.  He raised his troops locally.
