Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the relations of the southern Indian tribes and the white settlers. Although their relations were generally peaceful in the first decade of the nineteenth century, it was entirely the opposite during the American Revolution. The discussion looks at the Five Civilized Tribes, which had an elaborate system of beliefs and characteristics that set them apart from the others. These tribes are the Creek, Choctaw, Seminole, Chickasaw, and Cherokee. The chapter also discusses the different treaties of the American officials with the southern Indians.
