During the Indian Wars the famous Indian fighter, Andrew Jackson, engaged the Indians at Fort Hill which was near Currahee Mountain in the "Battle of Currahee". During World War II, the mountain again became a part of a War. The U.S. Army selected Currahee as the site for its first Parachute Infantry Training Center to be named Camp Toccoa.
