In a battle at daybreak the English defeated the Spaniards, killing or capturing 600.This battle was a prelude to Queen Anne's War and the first blow for control of the Mississippi valley by the English. It ended the advance of the Spaniards up the Chattahoochee and Flint valleys and France's ambitions in Alabama.
