According to my ggg grandfather's memorial plague the following information is regarding the Cheatham Regiment he served under. 

COLONEL ARCHER CHEATHAM
  • DESIGNATION: 2nd Regiment of Tennessee Militia
  • DATES: January 1814 - May 1814
  • MEN MOSTLY FROM: Robertson, Davidson, Rutherford, and Williamson Counties
  • CAPTAINS: Richard Benson, Hugh Birdwell, Robert Carson, George C. Chapman, William Creel, James Giddins, Charles Johnson, William Smith

BRIEF HISTORY: 
With a total complement of 520 men, this regiment was part of the reserves at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend (27 March 1814). Prior to the battle, many of the men transferred to the artillery squad. One of the transfers, young Private John Caffery, Jr. of Captain Charles Johnson's company, was the nephew of Andrew Jackson's wife, Rachel. After the battle, Jackson proudly wrote to his wife that her nephew "fought bravely and killed an Indian." Archer Cheatham was a prominant citizen of Springfied, Robertson County.
