Cherokee chief.

During the 1813-1814 Creek War, Ross served as adjutant of Gideon Morgan's Cherokee regiment, which fought with Andrew Jackson's militia and regulars against the Creeks at Horseshoe Bend and elsewhere. In a long public career, Ross served on the Cherokee national council (1817-1829, president 1819-1829); as chief of the eastern Cherokee (1828-1839); and as chief of the united Cherokee Nation (1839-1866). Ross led Cherokee efforts to resist Georgia's encroachment on Cherokee lands and federal efforts to move the tribe to lands west of the Mississippi.
