    Daniel Newnan McIntosh
    Daniel Newnan McIntosh, often identified as D. N. McIntosh, was a Creek rancher, soldier and politician, the youngest son of Creek Chief William McIntosh. He was a member of one of the most influential Lower Creek families of the 19th century; after they migrated west in 1828, they continued as leaders of what was then called the Western Creek Nation.

    During the War Between the States, D.N. McIntosh organized a regiment and joined the Confederate States Army as a colonel. He was notable for recruiting and organizing the 1st Creek Mounted Volunteers and for leading them in several battles in Indian Territory. After the war, he continued as a farmer and rancher.

    After his father was executed by order of the Creek National Council in 1825 for having ceded communal Creek territory to the United States in violation of tribal law, the surviving members of the family moved to Indian Territory in 1828, where they settled on the Verdigris River. They established what was known as the Western Creek Nation for some time. Daniel was sent back East to be educated at Smith’s Institute in Kentucky until 1841. D. N. later moved to a site near the community of Fame, in what is now McIntosh County, Oklahoma. He developed a farm and also raised cattle. He was also a Baptist preacher.

    At the outbreak of the War Between the States, Daniel N. McIntosh organized and served as a Colonel of the 1st Creek Mounted Volunteers (later known as the First Creek Cavalry Regiment, C.S.A.). Daniel’s elder brother, Chilly McIntosh, organized and served as a Colonel of the 2nd Creek Mounted Volunteers (later known as the Second Creek Cavalry Regiment, C.S.A.) which was under the administrative command of Daniel N. McIntosh. D.N. McIntosh was organizing the 3rd Creek Cavalry Regiment, C.S.A., which would have entitled him to the rank of Brigadier General in the Confederate Army. But the war ended before he received that rank. Eight members of the McIntosh family served in Colonel McIntosh’s regiment.

    His regiment fought in the following battles: Round Mountain, Chusto-Talasah (Shoal Creek), Chustenahlah, Pea Ridge, Old Fort Wayne, Honey Springs and Cabin Creek. Colonel McIntosh’s Regiment was one of General Stand Watie’s units having the distinction of being one of the last Confederate military units to surrender to Union military forces on 23 June 1865 near Doaksville, Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory.
