This chapter takes into account challenges in establishing colonial Georgia and the role of South Carolina in its shaping. The English in Georgia were assisted with material aid and advice by the prosperous people of South Carolina from across the Savannah River. This chapter highlights the emergence of the off-spring of the Indians and the English, especially in the case of an English father and the Indian mother who would act as interpreters and convince the Creek leaders to grant concessions for establishing the colony. How the early Georgia colonist James Oglethorpe used mixed race in the creation of the colony and the various treaties that the other English colonies including South Carolina signed with the Indian communities are also highlighted in this chapter.
