History:

William Augustus Bowles (Maryland, 1763 ? 1805). He was the son of a school teacher. With 13 years old, he entered in the English army, but later he was expelled. Shortly after, he entered the service of the Creek Indians, who became one of the most influential leaders. Bowles gave them some military training, configuring with them some troops that in different occasions helped the English in their fights against the Spanish; for such services, he returned to the English army and obtained the appointment of commercial agent near the Creek Indians. In 1792, the Spanish retained and sent him to Madrid and from there to Manila, but he was able to escape back to America and putting himself back at the front of the tribe Creek, resuming the previous activities. In 1804, the Spanish stopped him for the second time and he was incarcerated in the castle of Morro in Havana, where he died.
