    • Atasi or Autossee town, Upper Creek Nation (near present day Shorter, Alabama). This was one of the larger towns in the Upper Nation and the home of the Red Stick Prophet, High Head Jim. Richard Bailey maintained a precarious relationship with the town and by 1798 the National Council voted to expel him. He was killed in a riding accident before removal. The Baileys eventually settled in the Tensaw. Atasi was destroyed by Gen. John Floyd on November 29, 1813.
