The First Cherokee Mounted Rifles was formed on August 31, 1862 with Colonel Stand Watie commanding, with Lieutenant Colonel Calvin Parks second in command. This unit along with others adopted the Cherokee Braves flag as their regimental colours. After Pea Ridge many of the Cherokees left the war, but Stand Watie and his Cherokee Braves remained for the duration of the war scouring the region using guerilla warfare, cutting Union supply lines and disrupting Federal operations throughout the Indian Territory. He was feared by his loyal Cherokee counterparts for the next three years. On May 10, 1864 he was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General, the only Native American to reach the rank of General. Along with this first, he was also the last Confederate General officer to formally cease hostilities two months after Appomattox and Bentonville

In the meantime, Watie had returned from the Civil War to find his home burned to the ground by Federal Soldiers. In financial ruin, he spent his final years farming and trying to restore his once-beautiful Grand River bottomland.All three of Watie's sons preceded him in death and in his last years he watched as colossal tracts of land legally deeded to the Cherokee were taken from them as punishment for their support of the Confederacy and given to other tribes. Many believe that Stand Watie died of a broken heart. In one of his last letters to his daughter, he would say "You can't imagine how lonely I am up here at our old place without any of my dear children being with me."

One of four Cherokee Chiefs who signed the Treaty of New Echota in 1835, which surrendered all Cherokee lands in Georgia to the United States and resulted in the forced move to Indian Territory. Four years later, Watie escaped death when the three other signers were murdered on the anniversary of the signing
