At Fort Smith, Arkansas representatives of the Cherokees, Creeks, Choctaws, Chickasaws, Osages, Seminoles, Senecas, Shawnees, and Quapaws signed a treaty of loyalty with the United States, and renounced all Confederate agreements. Additional Indian groups later did the same. On Sept 21 a treaty was signed with the Choctaws and Chickasaws calling for peace and friendship and abolishing slavery.
