Fort Mims and Holy Ground are two contemporary nineteenth-century sites occupied by Native Americans on opposite sides of the Creek Indian War. Pottery assemblages from each site were gathered and compared to determine similarity. It was found that both sites continued to use traditional Native American pottery, but in different quantities. Fort Mims used less decorated, more utilitarian vessels, whereas Holy Ground continued to use more complicated vessels. The main difference in the two sites came from the amount of European-style pottery: Fort Mims had more than twice the amount of European than Native American pottery, but Holy Ground had almost no European.
